Left To Withdraw

by C Cattaway   Jan 31, 2018

Who broke your spirit, leaving you
To never want to try?
Who let you think you were not worth
These tears, formed in my eye?
Who left belief to die within,
No matter that it's wrong?
What made you give up sharing words,
Or life? Where's your heart gone?
Why can't you see that you're worth more?
Why did you listen then?
Yet cannot hear what I now say?
When will you breathe again?

    This hit so close to home. Years ago, I would have probably felt uncomfortable reading this and just wanted to hold myself because these questions see and reflect an honest reality. It's incredibly hard to realize one's own worth, it's incredibly hard to get back up after wanting it all to end, but it's a journey of self-love. A journey that takes time and patience. <3

      Aww. Thankyou. I have a friend going through some stuff.. I tried to imagine what I'd say if I were her reflection in her mirror.. I hope it came across as such x
