The Grave of Judgment

I have lost myself
in the words of others,
buried myself
in people's opinions.


Judgment may weigh
heavy on me,
but I will not
let it be my grave.


I will not give them
the last nail
to drive into
my coffined heart.


I will rise above
my yesterdays;
despite what they say,
I am still alive.


They won't be able
to take hold of my hope;
my future won't be altered
by my circumstances.


This won't be the end of me;
it is only the beginning.
