There once was humiliation.
There once was fear.
There once was sarcasm,
intimidation, and terrifying
realizations about twisted lust.
Then one day
while my soul was wandering
my self-worth showed up.
She lifted her chin to humiliation.
She bid a cheeky “Sod off” to fear.
She flipped sarcasm the finger.
She learned to knee intimidation.
She taught terrifying how to be afraid.
and lust..well let’s just say love
taught it how it was really done.
