my Battlefield

Under this exposed battlefield

i have nourished life.

It is here that i hold my breath

and store my energy.

 

From third to second chakra

a patchwork of

scars, stretch marks, and ink

blanket my anxieties of love and esteem.

 

Sterile precision

marks my

growing

strength.

 

Look for beauty in the shadows.

For there is adventure in this heart

and freedom in my spirit.
