Woman


Woman,
queen
with a tarnished crown.
Scars on my soul,
mapped like the constellations
in the sky.
I forgot how clueless
I was as a girl.
How sad my soul was,
seeking other lost souls
to lift,
redeem
from the wreckage of life.
The moon shadowed 
my recklessness.
The tide brought erosion
to my shore,
igniting the hunger to overcome.
Thread by thread, 
I weaved into a tapestry
of strength and survival.

  7. A little tarnish is inevitable, but how we react to it is our own choice. Finding your own strength is a good choice.

  16. I forget how clueless I was when young as well. I might still be clueless. I liked the idea of the moon shadowing recklessness.
