The scars you left me
with always seem to
tighten their grip on me
when I think of loving you again

It reminds me of what you’re
capable of, and how hard
I worked to let you go…

Photo Of The Day 4.28.21

~Maybe I should start a photo series called, “Bridge”~

Have you ever noticed the things beyond the ledge?

The inanimate objects surprisingly all striking a pose

They know what they are worth

And they just wait patiently for somebody…anybody

To give them a second look

I’ve never realized how much I have in common with the players on the sidelines

Aren’t we all just waiting to be tagged in?

Anxious for the day we can display our special skills…

It has arrived!!

It’s here!!!

I see you, little one

With my son, I learned how to love.
But with my daughter, I am learning how to love myself.
.
.
I see how you look at me, little one
I see you studying my smile wondering just what it is that makes my cheeks crinkle
I see you stand there, little version of me—and I want to be better
So I am learning to
Crave my curves
Serenade my scars
And long for the lines that lay across my thighs
When I see you seeing me, I want my self love to scream out, “I am worthy no matter how I look”
I see how you look at me, little one
Your eyes house a sparkle you’d never find among the stars
And I will do whatever I can, to keep them sparkling forever.
