No More……

rolls forward
never backward
for if it did
all who regret
who dismay
would want to try to change
the mistakes of their pasts.
Are they truly mistakes?
I don’t know about you
but me
my mistakes
they are what have molded me
what have changed me
what have made me the woman I am…..
Yet I am not only my mistakes.
I am my strength.
I am my dreams.
I am my truth.
My desires.
I am me.
A butterfly
erupting from its cocoon
bursting upward
caught within the halestrome
free finally……
Belief is a many faceted thing
when lost
laying broken at ones feet
head hung
tears crying.
No more.
No more loss.
No more grief.
No more……
No more
is my new mantra
for no more
shall I fall at anyone’s feet
I am my truth
my healing…..

  1. Lovely! Indeed, mistakes do mold us and help us see how strong we are. So, instead of mistakes we can call them lessons. <- this is a Gabby comment… LOL sorry, I didn't want to feel left out of the inside joke above 🤣🤣
