Just don't know

Lula Jean Remick 1973 (New Hampshire)

I don’t know if I can ever be whole,

I don’t know if the pain will always show,

I just know for know I need time,

I need to find my own path in life.


Maybe together , or maybe alone,

 At this point in time I do not know,

All I know is there’s a lot of hurt

And I need to fix it for my own self worth.


I need to make all the wrongs right,

I need to heal this broken heart of mine,

I need to understand  how they change my life,

And give myself back all that was taken from me.


It may not be easy and yes it will hurt,

And I am sorry if your also hurt on this path,

The things that happened were not your fault,

But the consequences and fallout I’m afraid  know not


They will land as they fall

And you being  close could feel that fall

Please bear with me and I’ll try my best

There’s no manual  to heal from my he’ll.


It just is…..
