'Borrowed Jar'

She walked around thinking all she would ever be was someone's yesterday She couldn't understand why that wasn't enough So she walked around thinking she was too much In stead of good enough She tried to dim her light She tried to tone down on her personality Only to end up in a dark space Wondering where her life was heading She didn't get it; that all her smiles Were bottled up in someone else's jar Until one day; the dark space became so tight She couldn't pretend to be happy anymore She needed to get her happiness back It was not meant to be kept in a jar She had to free herself from Her prison of thoughts She needed to get out She ultimately put herself in that space And only she could shake that feelings off On that day she took back her life When she finally smiled it was from her heart

    Our existence should never be up for grabs. I believe if we could hear what people really think, this prison would have open doors. She made it out with God's manipulation! Be blessed!
