I learnt that sex isn’t about a man’s power
Or a woman’s shame
That’s what I learnt as a child
But that’s not what is real
I can have something different
today, I went to work
On time
I left my coffee on my kitchen counter
And chatted with my coworkers
Today I went to therapy
And told her
I know it’s not the end
But right now
I feel like feeling bad for myself
And she asked me to hold
The blessings and pain
In one mind
To say thank you
For a job I love
And in the same breath
Feel how my life is a mess
and I am scared
She asked me to hold
My own truth
And make space
For some goodness
To light the way
