Wombman

this part of me is my strength

I smile in his direction and his heart is in arms reach

but my soul knows when not to let it get too deep

I'll care for you however you need

for through me the world breathes

held together by the phases of the moon

with one strong tide I find myself 

giving my all, it's all I know

 

this part of me is my weakness

I smile in his direction and he thinks it's meant for him

but my mind is on a million things

I'm sure he thinks he needs this

but my affection carries a strong grip

how can I let go if I was made for this?

so equipped but like the moon some phases lead to catastrophy

falling victim to my vulnerability

am I only as good as this phase will allow me?

 

this part of me is my strength

this part of me is my weakness

eyes opened I navigate through my mind

giving myself time

I find the strength to control my weaknesses

taking the pressure off

I balance it all with my strengths

for my purpose is wrapped in them both

I am both vulnerable and in control

these phases will guide me

I am no longer lost in the emotional

I will no longer neglect the physical

I will no longer neglect the spiritual

I will need all of me

to take on lifes responsibility
