The Hardest Chapter

The sky scraping mountains

that you turned into sand

No longer chains

Holding you back

 

These details that made you

A page turning success

The reason you view life

As if you were blessed

 

Because of the worse

You’ve been through is gone

No longer overcoming

Finally you belong

 

Yet the haunting story

Of this chapter did end

It has yet to see the light

So that you may fully mend

 

How do you expose

The truth you held close

That through the resilience

You have yet to be whole

 

You aged at a pace

Leaving behind all your friends

Grown woman decisions

Before schools end

 

This open book that you know

Ripped out pages from the past

But in order to move on

You must glue them back

 

A full circle story

For the world to understand

That the one god gave her

Was less than a man

 

This is my true story

With the last chapter in tow

Through clenched eyes and tears

Will be finally told
