Life as me

Life as me

Feels free

No longer anyone to impress

I can count on this

That where there was only emptiness before

I now have a store of love and understanding

To draw upon

I remember now with less alarm

All of those terribly dark years of emptiness

When I did not know truly

What it was I had lost

The way to

Myself

And yet I wonder too if there is not

Another self born out of all of this

As if all of the pain were only there

To serve as a midwife to the growth

Of me

I person who can finally feel

Freely herself

Comfortable to live

Deeply suited

Within

Her own skin
