Farewell suffering, you’ve been my constant companion.
I know your beautiful darkness and your deep crevices.
I know your soft and familiar caress, and the sweet ways you make me stay.
I know your yearning to be with me. It’s programmed in.
But it’s time to say farewell.
Farewell fear, you’ve always been there, as close as my breath.
Taking pride in your duty to protect, as you built a violent, silent fortress around me.
You kept me so safe from the unknown. From change. From anything new.
But it is in those foreign lands that my dreams are waiting.
So farewell, fear. Thank you. You are dismissed.
Farewell self-loathing, you’ve been a good girl.
Making sure that I always remember that I am bad.
Keeping me small and quiet, so I don’t offend others with my truth.
But I am not bad, and I don’t need to be good.
I bid you farewell.
Suffering. Fear. Self-loathing.
I let you go now.
I am rising.
I won’t be coming back for you.
Life is waiting with open arms.
I say yes to her.
I’m coming home.
