On That Day
On that day
I chose the hard road of recovery from self-hatred.
I chose to laugh to keep from crying.
I chose to self-deprecate moving from shame to silence.
I chose to covet their relationship without knowing the truth.
I chose to bury my head in the sand regarding romance and finance.
I chose to run away from the loneliness under guise of chasing my dreams.
I chose to trudge, walk with purpose, the road to happy destiny.
On this day
I choose joy over foreboding joy.
I choose to share my fears and my hope with closemouthed friends.

I choose to remove myself from toxic spaces.
I choose safety and strength.
I choose to exercise my voice and speak the truth of my experience.
I choose the hard road of recovery steeped in gratitude for self-love.
I choose to laugh as if this is the last joke I’ll hear.
I choose to settle into solitude and self-reflection.
I choose to appreciate what my eyes see, what my heart knows.
I choose to own up to mistakes and acknowledge them, while reveling in accountability.
I choose to thrive in romance and finance.
I choose to pursue my deepest dreams, hopes and lived experiences.
I choose to trudge, walk with purpose, the road to happy destiny.
I choose to recognize the beauty of hope and love.
