To My Future Love #22
I think my heart was meant to break a couple times before you came along.
I had to reach out a hopeful hand only to have it slapped away.
I had to peel away the layers of my soul to see what rested inside.
I had to make my mistakes and discover my own weakness.
Only then could I learn and only then could I grow.
Only then could I become strong enough to love you.
But now I may love you truly, for these scars will tell no lies.
