No More

I won’t step in the garden I worked hard to beautify

I will not rip my wing off and give it to those who are afraid of heights

I am no longer giving away large chunks of my energy

I used to think that I would be able to gain all of it back one day

It has been years of giving and I’m still recovering

My words will no longer trip over each other trying to convince others that my feelings are valid

I will cry only when the end product is to heal

I refuse to put myself in situations where I allow verbal abuse from the people I still love

Distance has become my new best friend

And recovery is my main goal
