And with a sincere smile,
she looked to the stars
knowing the future was worthwhile,
even, with a thousand scars.

It took

a man
a woman,
two people
to create you.
But it only takes
one
to break you.
I know
how it feels
to be broken,
to be
the discarded experiment,
to be left.
It feels your half
complete.
You have a head
but haven’t feet.

Widespread rain descended
In the corner of my dreams;
A monsoon of drenching relief;
A tide to wash the slate clean.

I am a woman now;
Not a girl.
And all of the wounds I’ve won
Unfurl across my body
And my soul
Like shiny medals of valor
Or one, fragile, papyrus scroll.

And thus garbed, and so adorned,
I will wade through the cooling waters of
This cleansing storm.

Widespread rain descended
Filling my outstretched arms;
Quenching the memory of the battle;
Bringing the strength to end the war.

I am worthy now.
I am enough.
And in my hand, I crush the dust
Of guilt, of shame,
Releasing these bitter grains
To the absolution that comes with  
The drumming of
The rain.

Much like the stars
My light from the past
Is only now reaching me
I'm at peace with my past.
