QUILT

I’m a quilt with many patches.

The kind made with heart,

Vibrant,

Colorful,

Durable art.

 

Each patch speaks my struggle,

My hurt and my shame

Stitched and repaired

Scarred but not stained.

 

Each time the fabric of my being was battered and torn,

That piece was repaired

Made stronger

adorned.

 

Broken heart,

Broken bone,

Double mended

Triple sewn

Renewed destiny born.

 

Myself,

My – I

Indestructible,

Built like a quilt

We do—

Not try.

 

Fashioned by design

Unique and fortified

My life on high

Yeah..

An emoji with wings,

I’ll fly

Transcending,

On a steady rise…

Rain Rose
