Ugly Replaced by Beauty

Dear ALL THAT SEEK TO DEFINE ME…

Demons of the past that raise their ugly heads

Injuries that bleed all over again

Doubt that sneaks up and snatches each breath

Self hatred that comes and seeks to destroy

Blame that pours over and drowns validity

Regret which plays like a broken record

Sorrow that rips away all hope for tomorrow

Anxiety that claws away the ability to sleep

I have survived and conquered all of you each day because I believe that…

My present will define my future

My healing is owned by no one but myself

My confidence is my identity

My love for myself is greater and builds me up

My self-forgiveness is how I live life to the fullest

My learning through experiences are a blessing

My joy is greater and gives meaning to tomorrow

My peace has been cultivated and cannot and will not be stripped from me.
