Changes

Trying to balance the new me
With who I was before
Letting things inside set free
Im still me at my core

Keeping good and vulnerable
For these things are my strength
I am speaking my mind more though
Taking great strides in length

Difficult conversations
Changing dynamics at play
Trying not to be anxious
My boundries are here to stay

It's hardest with my family
For whom are my whole world
Try it most amicably
Though sometimes I have failed

With my sister its the toughest
She is my dear bestest friend
With her its surley the roughest
Worried changes will bring end

She recognizes it too
Had this talk many times
This she doesn't mean to do
Still she has crossed lines

Still she is my sister
And I love her always
I even love her mister
Though he also has his days

Changes they are most scary
For the better or the worse
It feels a little dary
To break generations curse

So I try to balance the old me
And blend it with the new
For while yes changes are most scary
They are long overdo

    Awesome poem. Keep speaking your truth Rachael, especially in the face of the voice of the past you, it doesn't want to go quietly.

    Change can be scary … even if it’s for the better … sometimes
