I am….

I am courageous and raw
I wonder what real happiness feels like
I hear the chimes of my own freedom. It’s my time.
I see myself growing from a child to a woman and a mother
I want to be the mother that I never had- for myself and my children
I am courageous and raw

I pretend that I know that everything will be ok
I touch my husband with love.
I worry that my children will feel the loneliness of life
I cry over all that I missed and messed.
I am courageous and raw

I understand that life is not meant to be this hard
I say that words are cheap
I dream of soft breaths- of a time when life will not be this hard
I try to learn and use my pain as kindling to strengthen me
I hope that it’s not too late
I am courageous and raw
I am.

This post was inspired by a fellow blogger and was based on the I am poem template that I learned about from her blog, www.farewellstranger.com
