Thought I was in a place of serenity and contentment,
Could handle anything. After all, I’ve been working
feverishly for some time.
But, what do you know? Life happens.
Negative energy seeped in and knocked me off my feet.
Though I wavered, I didn’t completely fall.
Though I tried to avoid it, it persisted.
And with every action, there’s a reaction.
Looking back, I realize that I should’ve handled the matter
Should’ve known better. But I choose not to beat up on myself
but to acknowledge and remember that I’m a work in progress.
Development is still in existence.
It was just a test.
With every work put in, there comes a test.
Though I didn’t pass with flying colors, thank God I
took the time to learn from this. One thing I know for
sure is that I’ll not allow any negative energy to erase
the work that I put in.
I’ll not regress into my former self.
I’ve made tremendous strides—strides that I’m tremendously
There’ll be other tests. I’ll be prepared because each day
I endeavor to hone in on my coping skills to guide me.
The Good Lord has given me the inner strength and
power to counteract anything.
What was done to harm me, will ultimately turn out
to be good for me.
