Receive weekly mantras and musings notes

Twenty years ago I
could not see the storm
that was brewing
in her body
– neither could the scans

Twenty years ago I
lived in the body
of a twelve year old
in a space in between

Twenty years ago I
was ravaged by the legacy
of a depression gripping my mind
that had more power
than a young girl

Twenty years ago I
was lost and searching,
knew not the path ahead
knew not who I was to become

Twenty years ago I
discovered how it felt
to have life flipped upside-down
turned inside out
leaving me exposed, raw, heart broken

Twenty years ago, everything changed.
