What do you see, when you see me ?
Do you see my height or the lack there of ?
Do you see the scars that have molded me ?
The markings of many battles. Do you feel them ?
Do you see the once sun bleached hair
or the graying mane that surrounds me now ?
Do you feel the determination that moves me forward
or do you see the woman I am, trudging through the muck ?
Don’t worry I’m not stuck
What do you see in me, walking my house in the night with a machete ?
Do you see courage, fear or lunacy?
See me, here at this moment
ready to protect my home, my sacred space
Do you see my light ? Its going strong
I mean to share with you, an ancient bond
Do you see yourself in me ?
Don’t pass me on the street without looking closely
There is so much more than what is showing
No looking back
It’s the time to connect and share the knowing.
