A few weeks ago I wrote a poem. The past handful of months have been a bit of a ride for me and I think these words spilled out because I am in a place of radical shift and self-acceptance. I honestly hadn’t written a poem since I was probably in my late teens or maybe early 20’s. While it is personal in nature, I think many women will find some of their own truth in the verses. A dear friend commented that it’s beautifully raw and accurate so I know I’m not alone in the pursuit of finding balance among the contradictions.
Always seeking ways to perfect my craft, I have a feeling there will be more poetry in my future.
