ripping and tearing
not even at the seams
broken in so many places
in ALL the in betweens

to all the parts of myself
yourself, never loved before
this is for YOU, all of US,
in this moment, be the change

never thought, ever thought
of what I gave away
free is never FREE
it costs so much in pain

each piece each moment
lost to history and SHAME
no more, not today
take it back, seize the day

nanoseconds, not days
micro moments, not weeks
take your time, no rush
healing is the long game

it's your life
take control, it is NEVER too late
no matter how you identify
always let them hear you ROAR
