Yesterday’s post, An Untold Life,
was my fight song
take back my life song
prove I’m alright song
like a small boat on the ocean
sending big waves into motion
like how a single word
can make a heart open
I might only have one match
but I can make an explosion
(a few lines from “Fight Song”)
Here is the YouTube video with the lyrics of “FIGHT SONG” by Rachel Platten:
Listen closely to the drums. Soon that will be me playing, and what a day that will be, ‘Cause I still got a lot of fight left in me…!
Thank you deeply and sincerely to everyone for your kindness, through both your expressed and unspoken words!
I am truly touched!
I cried so much over the past few days and nights writing and getting it all onto paper. I was terrified about posting it. I had never seen, felt, or taken all of it in together as one. It was all fragmented and compartmentalized before. It is the first time I got to begin grieving it as a whole, to claim it and accept it as my life, that this did happen to me.
At the same time I am amazed at the way it all came together, as if it was meant to be, as if it was finally time. It has been a heavy weight to carry. And I do feel as though an unbearable pressure has been released.
This song got me through all the tears yesterday! It has been soul cleansing to listen to over and over again!
My heartfelt thanks to all of you!
