Acceptance

Updated: Apr 18



A woman beling brave and accepting herself.


The body they warned me,

“never age.”

I stood like a mannequin,

The display,

A slated stage.


It took me a long time to say,

"Accept what is today.”

When the words left me,

Still my face,

It stayed the same.


The ache on the inside cried,

"inordinate repair. "

The world was on fire,

and I was not the one,

to make it rain there.


It took me a long time to say,

“Accept what is today.”

When the words left me,

Still the smoke,

It stayed the same.
