Today I hit delete.
At first I only wanted to move all the digital files, the traces of the beginning and the pieces of the middle, to a home all it's own. As time continued to pass and the storm raged on, I would visit occasionally. I would daydream with Hindsight, reminisce with Sorrow and run from Heartbreak.
But today I quit.
After all the sadness, madness and tears, I finally quit. I am here, waving my white flag on my life. Gathering up my support system and hugging them all so dearly as if to regulate my heart from beating out of my chest.
Where you took me, I will never forget. There is no ESC
from what you are capable of. For what I saw you execute. How you took your rage and your sadness and you crossed a line that was never yours. There was no peace in my soul after seeing the lies unfold on the screen. There was no place to hide from the Hate that spewed from your very being.
It doesn’t take a lot of strength to hang on. That's easy. That's why I turned my head so many times. It takes a lot of strength to let go. And here I am, letting you go. Forgiving you. Giving myself Closure.
I hope that you find yourself out there. I hope that you don't let the monsters win. "How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours."
