Exhale - Poem by Shalia Robinson

I just want to breathe again
Live again
Letting go of all this fear that lies within.
Tired of being honest and wondering if your all is being given
I love you!
I'm in love with you.
It's you I want to share my all with, live passionately life with.
I want to smile without wondering if later on I'm going to cry.
For me love is what helps me ease the pain of hate.
The hate I formed from disappointments.
People I once trusted
I hate being trusted one way only to be excused by apologies
I don't want to accept that fact!
That you can just walk all over me by saying one word.
The fact that my heart aches everytime this happens.
Skipping beats....striving to recover
Get back to one's normal pulse.

I become quiet......
As I release the voices in my head.
Running rapid based on what they just heard.
Struggling to compromise
They take on a life of it's own
Control and overwhelming the whole system.
Instantly....with just one encounter
But many past encounters
My reaction becomes repetitive
My behavior becomes self destructive
Then, here is where my thinking has to be disruptive.
Replaced with old but new memory.
Appreciating my past and valuing my future
I reset
Changing my atmosphere with solution
Acknowledging my dangerous pattern
I switch to operate in power
To function based on my ability not feelings
For they come and go.
Even though techniques get old
Never do they whither but helps us to grow <3
