It is…

Dedicated to all those bad girls who tend to be so hard on themselves… 

That is the sentiment
After so long
In a long time
For so long
Tears swallowed my sleep
And I drowned in
My own pathetic pity
The one I reserve for me
So much allowance
Abundant grace
To have mercy on me
Holy imperfections
The wonder of self
As it is
I see self there
Laying bare in the barrenness
Of not making any sense
Of the senseless
Sometimes ignorance
But most often a choice
For stupidity requires boldness
And courage
To be pure and truthful
Honest and raw.
Who would want to see that?
I hid my face behind my sinful palms
For too long
Bearing water like coconuts
Sweet, fleshy, and fresh;
A faint almost insipid shade of white…
Give away. Give it away.
The coerce filaments hide tenderness.
Are you bold enough to
Cut through?
Sometimes I run
To edge of my own limitations
Hoping that you
Will follow me there.
Are you bold enough to run after?
Or, are you smarter than that?
