I didn’t

want my life to repeat what I did or happen to me in the past.

I want things to be clear and so that every step I take  I knew what I could control.

I didn’t want to keep saying yes to everything because I could.

I just want to say No because I mean I can’t do it.

For I know that I have worked my body a little too hard and so I will be sore.

I didn’t want to know the truth even though  I know it’s best for me if I move on and not stay here in this place.

My peace has shattered and my mind is fighting to stay alert but, it’s a fight I can’t keep holding at bay.
