C is for compromising my self-worth
O is for overcoming diversity
N is for needing to be loved by any means necessary
S is for self-loathing when I knew no other way
E is for the evolution of my soul
Q is for the future queen in me
U is for understanding that all of this isn’t my fault
E is for the essence of my being
N is for all the time I neglected my common sense
C is for controlling my narrative
E is for emerging from the flames victorious
S is for surviving and living to tell the tell
Consequences can only hurt
if you don’t learn from them
so do better to be better next time…
Consequences can either make you
Or break you
the choice is always yours…
