Book Excerpt of “Redemption” | “This Time”

THIS TIME
I don’t want to be weak anymore
Or fragile or unspoken
I don’t want to be afraid anymore
Or complacent or unmotivated
I don’t want to be dead anymore
Or empty or unloved

I want to be strong
I want to be brave
I want to live
I want to love

Yet
Someone said
In Life
You don’t always
Get what you want

True
But this time
I do
