It takes courage—

a lot of it—

to sit with

what makes one afraid.


One needs to be braver

to comprehend

and resolve the fear

to bring it to an end.


I accept this.

I am an escapist

who runs away from her scary dreams

and shadows of past experiences.


There is a reason

to why I am who I am.

Some people don’t have good experiences. 

Unfortunately, I am one of them.


Sometimes, especially in traumatic events, 

there is nothing to learn from it

but a lot to resolve 

to healthily evolve.


I am trying to heal.

I am radiating my own light.

I am trying to leave, forever,

the shadows of my past behind.
