Remanants of those moments, still cling on to me sometimes.
Holding on, in my dreams.
It makes me think of the emptiness, all over again.
The way love just stripped itself bare, right infront of me.
Leaving me with just my shadow.
I was forced to reach inside, inside the emptiness.
It was all taken away from me, my life suspended in time.

Now I have learnt how to fight my battles. I have learnt how to use my sword. I learnt that all I had to do was raise my sword high in the sky, and call out surrender.

I salute the stars of yesterday.
I say goodbye to the endings, sadnesses and joys.
I salute the sky that called itself yesterday.
I hold right now in the palm of my hand.
I am confident in myself enough, to know that I can do this.
The good, the bad, the in between, all of it.
My heart only filled with love,
the fire in my belly.
I know I am already free.

I used to wear a veil,
that I cast over myself like a shadow.
Then I stripped myself bare.
I freed myself and still I was not free.

When you start to take away the pain, you find even more pain inside.
You have to be brave,
you have to be kind to those parts. The parts you don’t like.
You have to wrap your arms around them and hug your pain so tight.
Just like you would a lover.
Those fragile parts of you, are so beautiful.
Just like a flower all ready to bloom.
It needs your light first, it needs your embrace.
It needs to know it belongs, before you can set it free.
