I wrote this poem yesterday, a little bit before I posted the Need post. I must say, that today is definitely a better day, but I thought you each might like to read this one. I don't usually post these drafts of mine, but many of you seem to enjoy reading my stuff- so I thought I'd be kind and share one that's a little closer to home for me if you will.
I want to feel
not so alone on the inside.
I want to be
more than what I see sometimes.
Many say to me
but you're such a strong woman,
and I am.
But that doesn't stop a woman
such as me
from wishing to be understood,
from wishing to be held up and seen
for the human I am,
because I make mistakes.
And like you, I want to be loved-
