the edges of myself

words, words, words

my first born baby you always will be

the one who ushered me into this space

a clearer, confident identity

able to move through the world and keep pace

with those who previously hadn’t seen

the shy and shrinking girl, now carrying

your dynamic beauty along with me

the brightness of your eyes and smile having

a magnetic affect on all of those

whose privilege it is to bask in your glow

your open generosity draws close

all creatures who have clarity to know

that you will always engage without fear

and trust wherever you land, love is near.
