The Choice

My life has been an exercise in recovery. A futile attempt to deal with a loss; which was the choice of a younger girl. Trying to erase the images that are impressed upon my every thought. I ask myself “Why?” I made that decision. The answer is a simple. It was formed from the feeling of not being good enough. The self -esteem required to be in a healthy relationship eluded me then; and still does.

Others have done their best to persuade me, To mold me into some form that matched their ideal image; and I allowed them to do so. It served as a distraction - for a short while. I am older now and the loss of a young girl has been imprinted upon my bones. Decades later the choice remains with me. Coming to my mind as I awake and remaining there until I close my eyes at days end.
