Poem: That Much Closer to Me

girl-2823868_1920 (2)


I have sought strength

In the tear-filled lessons.


I have allowed them

Retrace their steps

Across my skin

And though some

May see my weakness

I have never –

Given in.

I have learned


Is not all sunshine

And sometimes,

It must rain

But I have

Come to appreciate

The knowledge

That I have gained –

For every step forward,

despite those tears,

I am that much closer

To being the person

I’ve always desired to be.
