Autonomy from peer pressure,

Leagues away from suppression

Or humility fueled by insecurity

And external forces.

An island OD‘d on controlitis anti-bodies;

Ironclad jurisdiction;

What enters my mind is what I allow

Not what you believe I need.

My consciousness unwillingly

Reached a new level with a few

Unspoken mistakes;

Through the loss of what I naively believed

To be my most valued possession,

My world got reformed.

Through a mistake, a spark was lit

As fifty thousand watts of light beams

Showed themselves from

The deepest chasms of darkness

That resided at the center

Of my soul.

A new level of awareness

Hard to describe, which is why

I find myself having to paint a picture

With the alphabet in tow.

What makes me stronger

Is not the belief that i’m better than you

No, far from it,

You’re far from the equation.

What gives me power is knowing

I control my own reality,

That my opinion of the world

Is something no-one can take from me

That no-one can convince me if I can

Or can’t do something

Unless I allow them to.

    1. Awwww thank you! I’m so flattered that you thought of me! 😀 as much as i would love the award I was already nominated for it a while back lol and accepting it twice would be unfair as a blogger…but what I can do is re-blog a post from your blog onto mine (any of your choosing) hopefully giving you more traffic (send me a link)…. its the least I can do for a good friend such as yourself 🙂

      1. I’m so glad that you were nominated already! You definitely deserve it. If you feel up to it, maybe you can nominate someone else that you feel is deserving :D. You can just send them the link to the nomination I sent you and tell them to take your place!!

      2. That’s awesome, how are you finding your blogging journey so far? For me its been approximately 2 and a half years now…just surprised myself a little bit there haha 🙂

      3. The journey is definitely an emotional one but one that I just love. I think its forced me to evaluate myself not just as a person but as a dreamer and creator as well.
