Spiced Autumn air Swirling through my home It peppers my memory With sadness and hope
It brings me back to seven years ago, I was a broken-hearted girl Perplexed over the telephone, I tried so hard but he had made the decision to close his heart
But here I am now, Older and wiser Still dreamt of his distance last night But truly, My waking mind is over it
It's just my life is a river And I'm going deeper into it Once on the surface There was so much agitation So I held my breathe and went under, Trying to fix the cause of my turbulence
I've definitely healed, And learned a lot Both the easy way and the hard way These little internal shifts That I've been making gradually For seven years Have produced something beautiful in me Breaking through the seams of my previous tortured being
This river is winding, So I never know what awaits me But I've married uncertainty Knowing it's always pregnant with possibility
I haven't met any cultural milestones I'm not cool, popular or trendy All I have to offer this world Is a broken heart on the mend But still I'm full of gratitude And calling in more For though on the outside I don't appear to have arrived I have a root of joy inside my heart And it's rapidly proliferating As my gratitude grows.
