Unapologetically Me


A dark cauldron of emotions.

Turbulent and overflowing.

Cursed by others.

Burdened by another’s indiscretions. 


Lies and fabrications.


And greed.

Dark shadows followed me.

Like a plague.

A tumultuous, lonely journey.

Many barriers to overcome.

The years slip away. 

Fueled by determination.


Its time to let go.

To evolve and grow.

To exhale.

No longer carrying the weight of their actions.

I didn’t know me then.

But I know me now.

I am a masterpiece.

A tapestry of vibrant colors.

I am gifted.

I am strong.

I am brave and courageous.

I am unique.

I am fierce but gentle and kind.

I am independent.

I am a mother, a sister, a cousin, a niece, a best friend.

I am loud, I am vocal.

I am unapologetically me, because now I am free. 

You Made Her That Way

She’s resilient.

Because someone made her that way.

She’s courageous and brave.

Because she had to survive.   

She’s guarded.

Because someone broke her heart.

She’s angry.

Because someone didn’t value her worth.

She’s bold.

Because she’s been taken for granted.

She’s vocal.

Because she was silenced, one too many times.

She’s an over-achiever.

Because she’s been ignored and neglected.

She’s learned to enjoy life alone.  

Because everyone left.

She’s a fighter.

Because no one came to her defense.

She questions everything.

Because someone compromised her trust.

She’s independent.

Because she had no option.

She’s learned to love herself, beautiful yet flawed. 

Because she was bullied; too fat and too short.   

She has standards.

Because someone else didn’t.

Even when the cards were stacked against her.

She chose the high road without addiction.

She’s autonomous but will never leave you. 

She’s not perfect but funny, gentle, and kind.

She may be loud and opinionated, but she’s loyal. 

She asks for so little, just quality time.

She’s over-zealous but will fight for you.

If she loves you, never let her go.
