Old enough 

Old enough to know that fear and dread can be ignored sometimes but i will pay dearly for neglect, illusion, and carelessness. 
Old enough to know the things i worked so hard to deliberately forget will need to be deliberately remembered before i can move on. 

Old enough to know my ‘time of the month’ is not that time of the month. No siree. 

Old enough to know that it wasn’t you who let me down, it was me. It was my job to care for me. I’m a grown ass woman. 

Old enough to know that my mind is constantly writing speeches, chattering, planning, defending, but the best thing I could do is ignore it.

Old enough to know that my mind is a fast car I have not yet learned to drive. 

Old enough to know that even quiet actions can be reckless, hurtful.  Old enough to know I am no innocent victim. 

Old enough to know that what I see, feel, do and learn and focus on right this very second is planting the seeds for my future.  

Old enough to know that strength lives in the still parts of the water’s surface, not in the spouting fountains. 

Old enough to know my thoughts and actions will effect my own destiny. 

Old enough to know there are no easy cures, and that living without him is the most difficult bliss I’ve ever known.  

Old enough to know that when my patience runs thin, 

I’m allowing it to run thin. And I try not to allow that anymore. There’s always room to stretch. 

Old enough to know true leaders build build people up, they don’t break them down. True leaders are and are caring and curious.
