~

A symbol of where,
I stand today.
Boldly balancing,
what my love sees in me, what I see in myself.
A collection of the ornaments that were adorned,
passed down by the women,
whoโ€™s genes take new form.
In me,
novelly.
Influences carried forward,
reconfigure shapes, unexpected,
defying old, defining new,
conventions.
Between the women that stood before,
the woman, I am standing as.
On solid ground, shaping my past,
for the world, to see.
Slipping the secret stone,
inside,
just for me.
