Snared within the tangled web, so weaved

I am just not sure who to believe

The trusted ones, they have deceived

Leaving me… way behind


I fight to gain my footing, needed

But those trusted ones, they have succeeded

At leaving me to feel defeated

Having been messing… with my mind


But, down within, I can hope for light

Not falling victim to the night

With a flame of hope set to ignite

I’ll yet struggle… to be free


With each hand outward I’ll take a hold

And each foot forward, not be controlled

With my inner self to be extolled

I’m just learning… to be me

    This is so powerful! As long as there's hope, nothing is lost! But the biggest takeaway, is to always be yourself. This is crazy....I'm working on a....sort of similar piece. Very interesting!! Truly enjoyed it!

        We all get lost inside ourselves and if we manage to actual overcome all the things that may take us away from our own beings then that's what I call self love. Whether it's you breaking your self or another breaking you it's all we can do to stand up and take that extra look and truly find ourselves. A beautiful subject. ❤️

          It takes a certain amount of courage to break free from convention, and those around you. It's finding confidence in yourself that is rewarding. I find all of this and more in this beautifully crafted poem dear friend.
