I had to spend 2 days with my EX. It was a pleasant time. I even like his new girlfriend. She and I get along like two peas in a pod. Now that I like her, I feel sorry for her. I pray she moves on. I would hate for her to endure what I did for 32 yrs.

Snake Skin Revelations

I saw you today, all day
and I was able to not hate you

Yes, you do not control my emotions
No more do you bring out the emotions of discomfort
The best thing I have felt regarding you
Is nothing.

Absolutely nothing.

You have no power over me
I am free of you.

Thank God, I am free of you

Yes, you are the father of my children
And grandfather to our grandchildren
But you are nothing to me.
You hold nothing that I want nor need.
It is the best feeling of freedom I have ever
felt in my life.

I have shed you like a snake sheds its old skin
We no more are dependent or apart of one another

I have a life of my own, you are just a face in the crowd

I thank the heavens for bringing me to this point of
no return.

I have shed the shackles that bind me, I have no
bars of control binding my spirit
I am completely free of your influence and manipulations

You have no power over me
I am a woman and I am a good woman

Your words, your fist no longer will take my soul apart
I am whole, I am free, I am me again.

(Hello Kathy, I am so glad you are back)

And you, Steve, have no power over me.

Thank the good Lord, I am through with you.

Sometimes freedom is knowing the person that you have become and saying goodbye to those circumstances that are no longer a part of who you were! Praise God and you too!


Oh, I can so relate to this one!
And I can also relate to the feeling of victory when being able to move on and stand tall and say: You mean nothing to me anymore.
Great closure-text(hope I spelled that right).

Powerful writing indeed!

You did what needed to be done, you let God solve this problem darling!!!!
