Found me on a basement floor
back when I had lost it all
Told me what the fight was for

You elevate the life in me,
illuminate the in-between
Forever gonna feel this free and
I’m not giving up now.

He made such a mark on my heart. It was a very brief and fragile time, but I catch myself missing it every single day.
Today, somebody – a father figure – gave me permission to let go. I didn’t know just how much I needed that until I heard it coming from his lips. What a relief it was, after all this time, to finally be allowed to.
The expectations of other people can sometimes be such a cruel thing. So beyond the “shoulds” and the “shouldn’ts”, I’m taking back my own damn life.
