I have to do this part for me.
When I Don’t Want to Ask for Help – I Got Me
Nowadays I am comfortable in my strides,
Nowadays I swear I don’t let ego and pride
Just as trauma no longer speaks for me.
No, there’s something else here, inside of me,
A determination that I’ve never felt before.
I won’t beg and plead for help –
Not because of what happened or didn’t happen
When I needed help before,
This time there’s something more –
I got me.
In my eyes it is true
That any human being
Will and does do
What they want to do.
Just because I poured out my own cup
Doesn’t mean that I get to look up at anyone else’s.
No this part, this lesson is mine,
And I will be just fine.
I do hope that others don’t take offense
But this particular part takes precedence
Over many things.
This part is personal,
And I’m solution based
Now I stared myself so deeply in the face
That I don’t want to lean on anyone else –
I’ve got something to prove to me.
And little me.
I Love You, Little Me – You’re Going to Make It
I was surprised by how well received this poem was, mostly because of the extreme vulnerability that it took to free write it and post it without thinking too deeply into it. It’s intense, but so am I and so is everything that I write and share along my healing journey.
