You may not know who you are
But you know who you’ve been
Never deny what you’ve become
Even if you consider your past a sin
What makes one search for love
What makes one search for peace
It’s the aching of the heart bone deep
That pain that seems to never cease
Shake the chains you have holding you down
Break them from your tender heart
Recognize them for what they are
They are your past, yes of you a part
Look at what you now see
No shackles holding you still
You’ve come this far so well
And you’ve done it by your own will
Some see you for your image
Longing for more than a touch
You’ve come not to know
You are worth beyond that so much
Taking one step each day
Reflecting on your deeds
Don’t dwell on your past
For you’ve other present needs
There is kindness in you that is noble
In every word and thought you share
Never doubt for a moment
That there is someone

Thankyou for this poem. This is something that I needed to hear. This touched my heart because I know that now someone does care. While I’m encouraging other people through my blog I still need a little encouragement every once in a while. Nicely done. ! 🙂

Ronovan, not only did this poem get my attention because of its beauty, but because it is so strongly relatable. You could have been speaking directly to me, about my past! You weren’t, but, I’m willing to bet several of your other
readers felt the same way. Love it!
