nin
i learned to persevere
with sword over my heart
i kept my heart guarded
behind steel blades
but now that i wear my heart
so close to my hands
my fingers have become tough
with work and hard calls
i’ve learned to annihilate
with grace
so this heart can live
free

 

mom
i didn’t know
and you couldn’t show me
how to live
free
