acceptance

rock back n forth

back n forth…..

over and over and over again

just keep rocking yourself

back n forth

back n forth…

cheekbones pushed into boney kneecaps

hands not gripping your shins tight enough….

 at some point

you will cross over the bridge –

you will finally find

acceptance and

your hands will let go of your shins

and your cheekbones will face the trees

instead of being buried in your knees

and all the rocking back n forth

back n forth

back n forth

that lulled you to sleep so many nights

will now move from your toes to your hips

as you sashay forward

forward

forward…
