I Get to Decide

Well, it has been a rough couple
of days
of weeks
of years

Today I give myself permission
to rehash
to be angry
to grieve

For now, I am stuck
in this bad moment
in this confusion
in this betrayal

But not for long – it is not worth
the bad memories
the anguish
the pain

Tomorrow I start to move forward
one moment at a time
one day at a time
one week at a time

And in time this will become
A lesson to be remembered
A distant memory to be forgotten
A non-threat to my peace of mind

You don’t get to have power over me anymore
I get to decide my path
and it leads to better days
