    Just open
    Open WIDE

    ....

    Young
    Pregnant with DESIRE

    So many things

    That I have on my mind to say!

    So many places I've been, yet still more to see

    It hurts

    The pains of labor

    To a dream deferred

    Longing to birth this DREAM

    That has been long since concieved

    The memories

    Into

    EXPLOSION

    of my LOYALTY

    of my COMMITTMENT

    of my IDENTITY

    I can feel this dream

    Pushing on my last nerves

    Everything inside of me

    Trying to cling to REASON

    To TRUTH

    To SEASON

    To PROOF

    I try to LISTEN

    In oder to become

    THere is a lesson that life wants you to learn

    A reason for everything underneathe the sun

    A PROCESS,

    You know what I mean

    THE


    S
    T
    E
    P
    S

    In life you have to take

    And if you miss one

    You won't move forward

    Continuously

    So fiercely

    Trying to prevent

    Moving Backwards

    Don't want to regress

    Just make progress

    So I am lingering on

    Fighting longer

    To POSESS

    The true me

    When failure is all you've known

    You want Identity to call your own

    So you die to self

    Sacrificially

    wow DS

    WOW!

    growth is pain

    but hopefully

    pleasure can be obtained once all the pain is gone

    Sometimes we do have to go backwards to progress, as backwards as that may seem. Your poetry is just bursting forth with discovery. Do flow on, poetess!
