It Wasn’t My Burden To Carry


For years I felt like I was responsible

Like somehow I was to blame

Did I come at the wrong time, the wrong place, did I have the wrong name?

 

Then as I grew older I realized the problem wasn’t truly mine

It wasn’t me who had the issues

Why else would someone hurt a child, call her names, make her cry?

 

It was at the moment when I was able to accept

I was who I was no matter what

How could I be anything less than beautiful, accepted and whole?

 

So I embraced my entire being with all that I could

It wasn’t my burden to carry afterall

Why should I let it stop me, block me, or weigh me down?

    This is beautiful! It can apply to so many people in so many different ways. I love it! It makes me think of the questions that I asked before I finally stopped letting what happened to me in the past when I was a child keep me from being the woman God wanted me to be. 🙂

      That's where I was writing from as well…I had to let it go. I had to realize it was never really about me to begin with (in my case anyway). Thanks for stopping by Lovie 😉

    Really nice poem. As I was reading, found myself reflecting on the times becoming aware of my self awareness. Recognizing my own self worth. Very refreshing to digest another form of expression.

      Thank you so much. Today was one of those days I just felt kinda EH…so I needed some inspiration and a new approach.
