Poem from "Not I, But I Am"


Another poem from Not I, But I Am, with this poem came a hard truth about myself. I had realized through the hard struggle as a single mother, I had hardened my heart. One good thing, I guess, that did come with the chats on Social Media, was my heart getting cracked/broken; thus, now knowing how to bleed. In other words, my harness as a single mother has softened allowing love in once again.  

What You Gave Me


The journey presented hard for me

but the result did improve.

What once was my reality;

now resulting in my approve.

In becoming my actuality

what you gave me did remove

found weakness I can now agree;

was my heart that couldn’t move.

Realizing this I wanted to flee,

but instead, now given a reprove.

My place, I now stand in glee,

for what you gave to me,

a heart that knows how to bleed.

(Before these social media chats, because of my great struggle as a single mom, I had hardened my heart. These chats cracked my heart; which allowed love in)
