Today is a day

where I can’t validate

the phenomenon of a new breath

or the vibrant song in my heart.


The world outside,

adorned with charm

and miraculous brilliance,

gifts to our beings,

yet my eyes have lost it’s gaze,

veiled by deceitful trickery,

my spirit has become disconnected.


A knock at my door and I foolishly

let my past take a seat.

Burying my abundance of hope,

poisoning the beauty where I now nest.


My soul, roaring with intensity,

kicking and screaming for it’s removal,

trying to awaken this body that has become futile.

Relentless in her mission,

abandon never an option.


I’m exhausted by the battle within,

tired of the brutality that has

seized my mind.

On my knees,

needing forgiveness to embrace me,

not knowing it is there

waiting for me to embrace it.


My salvation is not coming,

it is perpetually alive in me.

I must hang on to my bridge of joy

that will lead me to my magnificence

once again.
There lies the power to remove the darkness

that no longer serves my divinity.

I will arise

I will endure.

You were wrong,

You were wrong all along.

I was placed under your microscope

blurred by your hunger to shatter this spirit,

in an attempt to calm the chaos of your own insanity.


I was broken you said

over and over and over.


But you were wrong.

I was a blooming flower

up against thorns of hate.

Age, my handicap

Fear, my guide

Too young to understand the

meaning of relentless malice.


Yet the day came when my strength

surged to meet the rising sun.

Your words became hollow and meaningless.

much like my confidence you had readily crushed.


Your voice is now mute

My recovery, my return to love

and miraculous forgiving.

To you, I send love and light.

An impractical teacher,

who’s led me to the woman I am today.
