Found on Pinterest on 3-25-16.

Old familiar faces rise up

Like ghosts from the past

To rattle my defenses

In an effort to get

My complete attention.


Time has given me

A different perspective

On pain that lasted,

It seemed like forever,

In the center of my heart.


I am still empty in places

Where love once grew,

And trust is hard to find

In the corners of my

once shattered mind.


Time has given me

The courage I need,

To heal from these tears,

And not repeat old ways

Of acting and feeling.


Lessons I have learned

From  the scars I wear,

Keep me on my path,

And help me create

Walls to keep you out.
