A Poem

I am letting a new life happen to me.

Performing pride

In the face of shame

Choosing hope

In the face of despair.

I spent a short lifetime

Always thinking it was already too late.

Every moment a confirmation

That I was growing too old to grow.

But here I am,

The oldest I have ever been

Deciding instead

To feel the youngest I will ever be.

All choices belong to self love now.

Whatever serves her

Will be.

She is the one God

That has earned my faith.
