I have chosen a different path for myself,
I am no longer caught up within your thoughts,
your ideas of myself!
I will no longer harp over the what if's, and could have been's!
You did what you did!
You let me down and there is not much more to it.
With this I have sanity,
I have my life back
within my grasp I feel it!
I am over you,
I am over your lies,
Yes, you are my Mother and always will be.
Nevertheless you are no longer my tormentor,
for I will not allow it!
No longer will you willingly or unwillingly control my life.
This is my life, Mother
