Anew

You took me in your hands
Tore up the pages of my stories
The ones that gave me nightmares
You mended some
Trying to make it good as new
I ask why
You said there is good in me
Those you wanted to preserve
A gentle word
A fierce belonging
From that moment on
I know my story
is no longer mine alone

We are never truly alone. Stories to inspire and encourage. Our life is a summation of all our personal stories, the good, the bad, the ugly and the victorious.
