To All The Things That Broke Me

To all the things that broke me,

I acknowledge you,

Because, vulnerability is powerful too.

For the records, I did not need you.

But the truth is I wanted you.

And the lessons that it taught me

Broke me and the illusions I fostered.

It gave me the courage

To break open my shell

And love myself in all my flaws,

And allow myself to heal.

The death like grip I used

In holding on was gone,

Only to be replaced

By a gentle strength

To heal and move forward.

To everything that

I ever wanted, and the ones

That wanted me back,

I set you free,

Free to hold space for yourself

So that you too can feel the love

That I now feel within me.
