Choosing to wait.
Sitting alone in silence.
Missing the connection in tandem with trying too hard.
Overthinking, not knowing and sharing my deepest fear.
Your sharp tone, not the words.
Sparks my defense, my strength and my perseverance, all an expression rooted in the need to have your approval.
Letting go of expectations, breaking the chains of never enough. Stepping into my life and starting right where I am. Loving the contrast, teaching myself discipline, balance and composure.
Your contribution to my lifelong quest for my highest good has not been in vain, I would not be the person I am today without you.
Thank you for helping me realize how much love I have for you.
