Personal Revolution

โ€œI need I need a revolution

My own revolution

My very own revolution

I need, I need a revolution

My own revolution

My personal revolution

Heartbreak is so hard to take

And I lay down in the bed that I make

Crying, crying, tears of change

Fighting, fighting, everyday

There must be a better wayโ€

 - Ziggy Marley, Personal Revolution

ย 

There are sides of myself that I still donโ€™t know.

There are sides of myself that still need to grow. 

The only constant is the inconsistency of my evolution. 

Iโ€™m learning the discomfort I have, plays a role in the story of my personal revolution

ย 

Isolation has been my comfort zone.

Alone is where I feel at home

This means getting through the pain that I carry.

Also means having to face some fears that I have buried. 

ย 

Alone I am my own lover, friend, and worst enemy.

My mind often juggles between the three. 

I can only trust, feel, or heal whatโ€™s inside of myself.

This is as much as I can balance, for the sake my health. 

ย 

My heart has fought through many wars

And repaired itself from many sores.

My soul was born before my first breath

I hope it will continue to live beyond my timely death.

ย 

My eyes have seen the pain and the glory

My words will be left to tell my story.

Transcribing these words from the depths of my feelings

Has been my saving grace throughout the process of my healing.

ย 

Addressing the issue, leads me closer towards the solution.

Self-restoration is leading me closer towards my personal revolution.
