And I breathe out the poison that once clouded my mind.

I see things for what they are.

kindness you paid to me was never there 

the flowers in my hair quickly died 

as did my hope

I realize that it never really was hope

It was something I told myself to cope 

But now as I walk outside I smell the newly blossomed petals 

I am not that broken shell you left many months ago.

Air fills my newly formed lungs

Yes, admittedly I was a child, but in all fairness you where too.

But look now I am much wiser than I was.

Funny how time works 

ticking away at us constantly reminding us of how short 

our lives really are.


I've grown


I've outgrown you.
