I Shall Proceed

Poetry for the broken hearted

I am stronger than I give myself credit for

My love is unconditional and stronger than Graphene

I have realized.

My depression keeps me listening

Hearing life as it really it

When I can dismiss the past, I will be free.

Life will be more then I have

Let anyone, no one hold me down

You are not my friend

Just someone attempting to hold me back.

But down is not a position I lay in

I breathe hope

I will not die

I will not disappear

I will proceed.

Head held high, my stilettos wrapped in pain

Against all who try to break me

I am a woman unconditionally.

At night when the lights are low

The candles lit


My tears will fall

As I scream at the ghosts of my past

I shall proceed.
