Some Peace

“There are things I regret. But I take peace
knowing it was to survive. A little agony was worth it.”

There are things I regret. In my heart, I feel the shards of each misdeed. I’m reminded of all the things I endured. All I did was just trying to survive. Like the night wrapped around me and took little pieces of my resolve until nothing but the pain remained. Those mistakes I made, I remember them like they happened yesterday, and I don’t know if I’ll ever forgive myself for them. But I do take some peace in the fact that I did them to survive. And if it meant I needed to do them again, I would. Because I might see the morning light. And a little agony is worth it.
