Self Acceptance

this morning when you showed , as you always do , i stayed with you. i let you become part of my landscape, part of who i am and what I know.

i was more courageous i could love u.

today it did not matter that u were different than i had hoped for. today i saw u as u are.

today it did not matter. today i became one with u .

i held out my arms to u,let u under the warm cloak of comfort that nurtures the rest of me

today i protected u,

the fight is over ,

no more pushing u away

out of sight,

no more need to mask

what you truly are

on separate sides

are we ,

no longer.
