Today is my birthday....last year when I discovered that it fell at the same time as NIAW I was heartbroken.
I wanted a break from what I carry as the darkest part of my heart.
I realize now that it is not a curse, but a scar, a story.
I am a Barren woman
I have been to dark dark places, I have felt sadness with no end
I have cried to the point of dehydration
I have been lost
and I am still alive.
