Mirrored Memories

I keep trying to be her
Constantly reminded of her reckons
‘success comes through process’
‘life knows no sad songs’
Those were her words
Now an anthem in my heart
As I tarry the danger of the world
Going home through the dark alley
Hoping to meet  my sunrise at dusk
Reality keeps hitting real hard
Always finding ways to get back
With her anthem at heart
So lost and not wanted
But am done running away from it all
Stop trying to be her
And be me
Underneath my scars
Be the beautiful me
Bring warmth and love
To the streets – my home
Time to embrace me
Time to write my narrative
Sing my anthem
Dance with my own light
Not her shadows
Not her past but my present
So momma let me dream till becomes real
Coz my my future is not pinned to my scars
‘I will run and chase the sky’
‘I will be the gold out of dust’
‘I will but still climb on’
Those are my dreams momma
You taught me well
But I get it all different now
Never stop never quit
That is my now anthem
Always loving you momma
But time to let you go
