The Woman who Still Stands

I will not apologize for who I am

My sharp edges

My brutal honesty

My trust issues that push you away

I am not the same girl I once was

Abandonment has sanded me down

Hurt and disappointment has molded me

Through the vulnerable flames she has emerged

Weathered through every storm

She is what survived

She is the reason I’m alive

And for that I will never apologize.

  1. The context of this poem indicate birth to a new woman through the discomfort of overcoming pain, albeit with the prior version of that woman still existing alongside her. Perhaps the pain haunts her, or perhaps she simply serves as a reminder as to who she once was.
