If I called this Strength, would it respond?

i’m afraid i’ve grown weaker. spiritually.
mentally. emotionally. verbally.

so let me sit in this moment, as a bud,
carved into myself, and be proud.
i no longer shout to impress.
i don’t smart to correct.
i don’t praise to fake-bless.
i am quiet. happily weak.
reminding myself
how blessed i am, for all the
dark times, when all the
Universe wanted from me
was might.

About terpsichorean

Stephanie Ambroise is a nomadic writer, a rolling stone, collecting moss from all over to add to the beautiful tapestry of art that is her soul. Her poetry is a collection of all of the places she's been and all of the places she dreams to go. Finally summoning up the courage to tell her story, and being met with positive remarks and encourage, she's ready to shine and let her story stand right next to her, instead of hiding behind her.
