Wounds

Hello Wild Ones🌸🌸

I hope you are well and that great things are happening for you. My prayer is that you know how awesome you are. I am currently really proud of how awesome I am and the dope things I continue to do.

Wounds

I took one look at him and I knew I was in trouble

The good kind of trouble, The kind that keeps you up

Because you can’t stop thinking about them

The kind of trouble that your heart beats so fast

Just by seeing them and hearing from them

I took one look at him and the revelation came

I knew I was going to walk down that path all over

The path of falling in love and chasing

Then I took one look at myself and saw the wounds

The ones I am ashamed and angry about

He looked at them and saw opportunity for growth

For a second, I entertained the thought

May be I could let him teach me about growth

May be I could see the wounds from his perspective

May be I could let him save me from my wounds

Then I remembered the pronoun before wounds ‘my’

And I knew they are part of me, good or bad

I am the only one who could save myself

I look at him and I knew immediately

He was going to be a ‘what if’

And that was for the best

Maybe just maybe the timing would be right next time

    LOVELY message here, and a wonderful poem. I also like your frame for a scarcity and abundance mindset. Important and truth. Well done, Jackie.❤️

    Our pain is ours to fix, and not someone else. That poem was great, if she went with the guy to be saved, it would have been a toxic relationship.

      True, It have become an unhealthy relationship. Thank you for reading.❤❤
