I Can

I can be taught many things but not attempt to control me

I can love unconditionally but never betray me

I can open myself up completely and be vulnerable in the moment but do not manipulate me

I can understand the root cause; is it in the present moment and within your area of control or is it the past where there is residual pain and trauma

I can let go.

I can forgive.

I can express gratitude.

But when the moment shows me a line is crossed, I cannot move forward.

And with this chapter, I am done.

I fly onward to the next.
