I have had to take a break,
From writing about my life.
So much has been going on,
I finally put down the knife.
I had my little girl,
Who changed my life forver.
She gave me hope that I could heal my wounds,
And to give up never.
Me and her father drifted apart,
Due to domestic abuse.
I couldn't let myself fall backwards,
To once again tying a noose.
I walked away to protect my daughter,
In any way possibly needed.
And in walking away I found someone better,
Someone to show me I wasn't defeated.
He has a son from his previous relationship,
And I couldn't have been more glad.
To watch him taking care of my daughter as his own,
And meeting his little lad.
My new partner stood by me in court,
As I fought for my little girl.
Watching as if she were his own,
In a crazy whirl.
Fast forward to this moment,
Years after all is said and done.
We are now a happy family of three,
With our now two year old son.
Everything happens for a reason,
Some good and some scary.
But we can come back from it,
And we do not need to wary.
This is my life so far,
My reason for stepping back.
I needed to clear my head,
And get my life back on track.
But now I stand her a warrior,
A fighter who never quit.
I stand here a proud mother,
And my fire for writing, is once again lit.
