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

Represent me 

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.
