I am me

I beseech you, I plead, I ask for forgiveness

but do I need it? Do I need to repent?

My actions are my own, not yours

you swore to love me, only to tear me to trash.

I can only be the woman that I am

Vibrant and alive, and I need to learn how to trust

that others will see the skin I wear

the heart that beats, enveloping all

while you still step away.

Once I cared but now I do not

I own who I am; I own myself

I no longer search or need to see

another’s response to me.

I am a single hard working mom in her early 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. A self confessed obsessive book worm I live for my son and my down time to read. I have a vast array of friends and cohorts who I will be writing about. I hope I can make people laugh or cry; be thoughtful and understanding. And I need to write so this will be my voice.
