In 2015 I wanted to die Cursing my own name No alternative in aim No escape but eternal sleep But it wasn't meant for me

In 2016 I wanted to please Never say no, Extend myself too far Let those who threatened to love me Actually hurt me Their fingertips burning every ounce of skin

In 2017 I wanted to be A better person than me Striving for education Starving for awareness Surviving for health And trying to find my soul I stumbled through a heart of gold

In 2018 I wanted to live Loving not only myself But those around me It was easier to be at peace Knowing my inner beauty Those who touch me will only touch with love And those who do not will receive none An education pursued A self worth found Full circle come back around.

And all I can think is… I wanted to die in 2015
