Miss Independent


Miss Independent 8-22-08
Becoming someone else
Do I like her or not?
I don’t know yet and I don’t really know where she came from

Never needing anyone
Or at least telling myself I could do it on my own
Now sharing things I’ve never told anyone
with a boy I haven’t known that long

Telling big M and big D
My confusions and asking permission
Miss Independent is
Losing independence
Because it needs to happen
Losing drugs and cutting
No longer outs
I told them
To get help
To live my life
With the fewest scars
To my heart.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
