The one who let go instead of holding on

The one who didn’t care what others thought

The one who stood in the face of the deepest sorrow and said “I refuse to live in misery”

The one who fought to live each day with purpose…beyond herself and her own interests and comforts

The one who was brave enough to share her story

The one not ashamed

The one who lived like she was loved

The fearless one

Dear strong, brave, courageous self,

Come back to me
