#BackAndForth

#BackAndForth in between
Contentment and anxiety:

The beautiful life I am living
Pursuing my dreams
Yet, the time I have wasted
Trying to make the best of it-
But won’t be able to reclaim
My time.

#BackAndForth in between
being Divorced & being Free
No kids, nor responsibilities
I could hang out all night
but I am lacking energy

#BackAndForth in between
being grown, confident
& womanly shaped
But age and gravity weigh in – my flat belly’s gone

#BackAndForth
Mainly because
Of what I have been taught to internalize
& conditioned
Words used to cut.
I now fight back,
Until I’m numb?

how do I stand my ground – against myself?

This is what keeps me awake at night…
