Shining through

You’re back again
With your empty promises but now you’ve got more followers

You’ve got your lies circling again like vultures
You’re ignoring all my posts
All my paintings
Not a word from you
About how well I’m doing this
You’ve got your own life
You’re too busy to glimpse into mine
To see what I’m doing
No pride is coming from you
No words of comfort is coming from you
Only distance and silence

I build in pictures
I build in moments
I learned how to cope without you
I’ve leaned on myself for so long

But one word of encouragement
One word of acknowledgement
It hurts that the child within me still goes to you
Still waits to see if you if you’re looking my way

But nothing comes from you
Nothing shines on me
Just my own spotlight
Helping me to push forward
Those that aren’t blood related
Those that don’t have to be there
But are

I’ve leaned on myself for so long
I’ll shine with my own colors bright
Turning your silence
Turning my darkness to sunshine
