I AM Her


It took a long time to love her. It took a long time to accept her.

Scars on her wrist Scars in her heart Scars in her soul

Her body isn’t perfect With a jiggle here and a dimple there The black is a lot more gray

She believed every label given to her Too sensitive Too independent Too much Not good enough Too “smart for your own good” Too strong Too weak Too angry Too blunt Too shy

Her rawness scared them She loved too hard or not enough

It took me a long time to love her It took me a long time to accept her

She became a mother and a wife She is a sister and a daughter An aunt and a foster She triumphed and failed in each role

It took me a long time to love her It took me a long time to accept her

She is the light and the darkness A perfect balance of each She is imperfectly perfect Divinely guided to teach

Her tongue is a razor Or a meditation It all depends on the storms

She learned to love the ones who hurt her And forgive herself for accepting their lies Betrayal never comes from your enemies She blessed those cords and released those ties

It took a long time... But today I love her

It took a long time... Today I welcome and accept her
