Pieces Left Behind
As you start to shed from your former self,
the pieces you leave behind are often the
only things some people have left to hold on to.
Your evolution may cause confusion,
your transformation may seem as a betrayal.
Some may struggle to understand the new you
or relate to your new found identity.
You’ll become somewhat of a mystery,
So, they’ll just hold on to your history.
Don’t let their inability to process
your progress slow you down now.
Don’t let their objection of you
reroute your forward moving direction.
You should not be defined
by the pieces you leave behind.
You should not be confined
where these barriers are aligned.
You don’t need anyone to approve
when you can improve your life.
Everyone of us has room to grow,
to mold ourselves into something new.
So, do whatever it takes to breakthrough.
