I was everybody’s girl once
And then somebody’s woman later.
In that transition
I ended up becoming Noone’s
Not even my own.
By the time that journey
was coming to an end
And I realized – too late – that I had changed
It had already destroyed me
in ways I never thought possible
In ways I’m still discovering.

But in all this,
I created my masterpiece
Unaware that I had it in me,
The only thing that has
made the journey worthwhile.
I was a poet
And I didn’t even know it!

And when I discovered this utterly wonderful beautiful side of me
I held on to dear Poetry
Like that was the only thing I knew
And I’m glad I did
Because it led me to You.

And now, I’m halfway
Between finding myself for me
And losing myself for you
