The art above my bed reminds me to push on– teaches me I’m worthy– Reminds me how you’re gone.
Like a reflection
In wavering water–
The image is clear,
One step forward, two steps back…
I could look at my life as a dance,
But why am I so frustrated
For nobody giving me a chance?
They said, “You don’t have talent!
You’re not good enough to try!”
They said, “You’re fat and stupid,
And you’re living a big fat lie!”
I’m lying in the present while nightmares of my past
Come gripping at my soul – my future overcast.
