A year ago today…

A year ago today,
I realised I was truly on my own,
So it was then that I became my own first superhero.

Another year older, a little bit wiser now,
No longer looking over my shoulder and no longer looking back in fear,
You went away a year ago today.

My tears ran dry a long time,
I never thought that I could feel this free, for the first time in a long time,
I have come a long and lone way, you wouldn’t recognise me any-more.

A year ago today,
My dreams started to come true because there was no more room for untrue,
My story is far from over.

Until the monster crawled into my bed,
I always thought I had kept one step ahead,
The roughest time of life turned out to be the best.

I say goodbye to the ungrateful traitor…

A year ago today I began a new chapter, I began a new me,
A new life full of promise and full of love and life,
Something I never thought I could be…A stronger, better me.

So for all that you did and all that you have done and will do, I thank you. For helping me become me. I have never been happier, dreams are coming true now, rather than just staying a dream, something that could never have been if you were still around.

“Fight fire with fire, the truth to a liar…I’m going higher”
