Consider Yourself Lucky

The fear of losing who I once was
Completely baffles my mind
The hurt caused by the opinions of people I once considered friends
Still roams and looms in my consciousness
Although I’ve experienced what it truly means to love myself
The doubts and the emptiness still remains
If only once in a while
It’s like a harsh reminder
Of the past and present
A fierce companion and teacher
Who comes to knock and say
I know the days, Your old ways
Consider Yourself so lucky
To have gone through it all
