And just for thought...
Old ties reunited but the old fear is gone.
Memories of who I used to be no longer send me running for cover.
Now I am who I once was, proud of who I grew to be.
She told me it was good to hear from me.
I lost the old paranoia that she was just saying that.
There were no assumptions that she was casting judgments.
After I let go of the past, I was able to remember without jaded pain it once represented.
Yesterday no longer controls my tomorrow.
Perky breasts and toned thighs, I can be proud of everything about me, not scared of it.
I am free to bathe in life once more, memories and dreams alike.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
