I’m Sorry

Lashing
Words read
Vile
Bitter
Striping self-confidence
Read
Re-read
Message makes no sense
Bunny teeth
Look in mirror
No longer smile
My confidence
Shredded
No longer feel beautiful
No longer feel my worth
Then I realize
Anger
It is not with me
It is not about me
I am comfort
I am steady
I am always there
Realize now
Excitement faded
Joy
Replaced with disappointment
But mom can take
My strength
I understand
A learned trait
(Thank you mom)
Absorb it all
Take it in
Tears cried in private
This is what it means
To love unconditionally.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
