A Year Ago

A year ago

I would have called you a fool.

For telling me that there is hope, 

For telling me that there is love,

A year ago

I would have called you a liar. 

For telling me that I am smart 

For telling me that I am worthy 

A year ago

I would have broken down. 

And believed that I was the fool,

That I am lying to myself, 

But that was a year ago.

There is hope, 

I found love,

I am smart, 

and I am worthy.

This is a new year.

Me
