Broken nd Built

I’ve been broken down
, built myself back up …
I learned the hard way .
I took my losses , took my lumps
. I learned patience , I wanted to give up
. I threw in the towel , I had enough . I gained strength , I trusted in the most high
continued to fight ,despite the lies
. Lies I told myself
and that were also fed to me .
Thought I wasn’t going be much ,
my mistakes were the end of me
the truth always shines
when you’re doing your best
So walk a straight line .
Until you pass the test
And sometimes
that line
may not be
completely straight
god knows your heart
every step you take .
So stay course
and continue fight
and eliminate anyone
that causes you strife .
Focus on your growth
instead of others ,
don’t become mean spirited
to your sister or brother . ,
Channel your energy
Be the change you want to see
. It’s ok to give credit when due , it’s ok to stand corrected when you’re wrong or too emotionally invested .
Remember we’re all human
no such thing as perfection ,
So , these are jewels I’m dropping today . Have faith in God
despite your pain ,
Don’t let confusion
and pain lead the way
don’t let pride
and ego change your ways ,
don’t let anything or anyone
stand in your way ….©️Rachel S Ullah
