Naked Honesty


My heart lies
in remarkable gratitude.
I am not a victim.
There are no lost causes.
I've been there,
done that,
and know suffering . . .
. . . . but it's all good.
I'm still standing.
Can't touch my self-esteem.
Don't want to hurt anymore.
Self-pity is an excuse
to do nothing.
I am guided by the spirit
and support
of meaningful experience;
and I make over
With silent resilience.


*Pinky*
