Wounded Wiser


I must be confessing
That I have been stressing
My wounds all need dressing
And it’s been messing
With my head

I gotta get right
Not everything is a fight
It leads to losing sight
Of what is right
In front of me

Not just giving away status
Because that is
Just plain madness
Recognizing that it
Must be earned

Not looking for highlights
In my life
As mother and wife
In plain eye sight
They find me
All day

In the smiles on their faces
In the peaceful places
In the familial embraces
No need to chase it’s
Right here

I’ve refocused my mind
Making the most of time
Chasing the dreams
That I am meant to find
And leaving behind
