Dare You Open Blind Eyes?

mamma and me

To those who choose to see only a person’s shackles. To those who keep them chained. To those who refuse to believe the Light can truly conquer their Darkness.

Open your eyes.

For if you’re not careful, you’ll miss when they are given wings….


You knew me as a broken child, untamed fire leaking from every crack.

Still, you keep your distance, wary of her burn.


You knew me as a lost and raging youth, chained to and running from her burden.

Still, you believe her darkness to be my truth.


Dare you open blind eyes to look upon the woman now,

On my own… beautifully scarred…and free.
