Reset

And in that moment I realised that I didn't have the tolerance For anything that placed me As a poor second I was bored Of how mundane The predictability played out Every single time There was no lesson for me to learn Not now I had already learnt the lesson Last time And the time before that also Like the flick of a switch It dawned on me That I am the creator Of my own life And I hold the power To press the reset button And live the life of my choosing The life of my dreams And that is where I had got it so wrong Feeling that I was stuck Or scared And so fearful Or so in love Yet all I needed Was to muster up The Goddess That lies within And take a leap of faith In myself Trusting in the call Of my pounding heart And follow my soul To freedom
