I can sometimes be an incredible wreck Mentally and physically my path is hard to treck. As a child I was most surely depressed Possibly from seeing my beautiful mother overly stressed I never did meet my biological father Still to this day it’s a menacing bother I have 3 siblings on my moms side & 3 siblings on my dads as well Up until the age of nine my parents lied about my father & had me feeling the need to hid in my shell I could feel my walls start growing as I entered middle school I pushed the envelope way too far & was drowning in my rebellion Pool I was raised up on lies & truly blind Eventually my step dad even left me behind I think I was starting to feel like no one cared At that time rejection became a thing that I feared Emotionally wrecked, lost, lonely, and poor That’s when evil tried to knock at my door experimentation some might call it I know rebellion was the ultimate culprit I found a way to escape my hell With any drug I could get someone to sell By the age of seventeen I was in some legal trouble I started dancing then soon after I was condemned to a bubble The dancing paid for my bright cloudy escape Drugs had sealed my every doubt with metaphorical tape It all caught up to me eventually I was locked up in that bubble and it took a year to get free I learned a lot in that year created from wrong It taught me lessons that will last all my life long That is until I met me a boy My first love, oh, it was simply pure joy After 3 Years he had cheated then left me I was so hurt and broken it could have been deadly I did eventually get on with my life Each year got harder and some days cut like a knife After ten years of dancing, I finally broke free Then A man came in my life and showed me what I could be It’s been almost five years he’s been by my side And with him life has become a more beautiful ride I know nothing is perfect, nor should it be Some days we struggle, but mostly we’re happy He’s shown me a world I never thought could be He also introduced the real me to me, The me that I never ever could see It’s amazing what life can do with your love It showed me below can easily turn to above I know life is fickle and circumstances may change Even if I Veer completely off course, I won’t think it strange I know life has its lessons it wants you to learn So I won’t question the path, I’ll just follow each turn Eventually I’ll end up where I’m supposed to be And I’ll know that that’s what life wanted for me
