The Comeback

I drank the medicine of her kind words
I realized I was missing a piece
Caring for everyone needs but my own
Walking on eggshells, holding it all in
I lost myself like sand through my fingers

Her words made me burst
My eyes clouded with oceans
And rivers ran down my cheeks
The darkness I was harbouring churning in my stomach

How did I get here?
how did I get this far from myself
I thought I was fine

I can’t sit in muck for long
My soul knows where to bring me to shelter me from the chaos and harshness
Where I can relax and take it all in

I remain on eggshells as I hold it all in to protect my sacred vision for myself
It’s not their fault, I tell myself
They don’t know they deep down harbour wrath against me and my vision

My rebirth is happening
The rebirth after the birth
When you realize, you too have work left to do
You too, Mama, have an inner child that needs caring for

I’m shedding my unwanted layers
Tossing away your garbage I’ve carried for years
I’m done with what was, its time for my comeback.
