Standing strong

Poetry By: MidnightsRaven

broken hearts can mend but sometimes it can lead to confusion and strength.

Wanting to run away from my broken heart,
Wishing with all my heart that I could depart.
Unable to run,can't just walk away.
Gotta take of my baby because that is my way.
I have to stand my ground and face the fight.
There is no backing down now, I have to do what is right.
I stand strong and look in a mirror to see what it holds.
What I see is a cloud, slowly dissipating as images unfold.
I see myself standing there off to the side with my son.
On the other I see a man, standing guard in front of someone.
Is it me he protects, or is it someone new?
All I know is that I have to follow a new road,
maybe it will lead me to someone new and untold.
I have my son with me and he is my life.
I have no more tears left inside to cry.
Time to grow up, to be stronger than before.
I can't let my emotions get the best of me anymore.
Gotta find my way back to reality.
Is it you I see standing before me?
Is this the path I must follow now,
or is it a different one, that I am not allowed down?
Can't back down, gotta do what I have to do.
I can't wait forever anymore, I need someone strong and there.
Who will protect me when I need it here?
I followed my heart and it lead me down a broken pathway.
Too much sorrow,stress and alot of pain.
I see a new way before me,
one I didn't see before.
I walk down it and see a bright light.
Even though I am nervous and confused, I reach out with my eyes closed tight.
Before me there is something, and I walk towards it more.
Opening before I can do it, I see you standing in the door.
There for me when I need it, strong enough to protect me.
You keep the darkness away and the light pouring through for all to see.
