Pedestals – Donna Astill

Judge me all you want, even behind closed doors and behind my back. I know you do.

But until you have walked in my shoes and lived in my world you have no idea what you are even talking about.Just continue to live your sheltered, boring life, sitting there with your gavel. One day the legs of that pedestal are going to break.

You think I made bad choices in my life. Well actually, the choices were already made for me, I just chose the best outcomes and I am proud that I made the right ones… Most of the time anyway.

I have lived life, I have fallen and scrapped my knees but I got back. I have watched death take lives and yet I am still here.

You have taken the straightest path while I was left with the most crooked. You may have seen countries but I have seen the earth herself.

You may take solace in thinking that you have won the battle. But you have not learnt what it is you need to win the war.
