Your face calls recognition from my heart
while your actions prove your unfamiliarity.

I scan the years we shared in search of the man
I thought you to be, only to find more confusion.
 
Yet in the midst of my search for comprehension
I discover the changes within myself.
 
I own a calmness of soul, a sweetness of spirit,
an outlook of optimism – gifts of change and empowerment.
 
Not your gifts – you gave only transgressions –
but gifts to myself for walking the higher road.
 
I open my heart to possibilities once more,
ready to embrace new love, new life, new hope.
 
I know that while you may know my face
you truly know little of me,
 
and that, my dear, is your loss

Your writing is of your own recognitions of the truth. The power to choose and own your destiny in love shines!

Clap, clap, clap...a round of applause for the poet, the poem and the sentiments for all too often this is the truth but people don't get the opportunity to say it to those who have hurt them.
