23 May i am enough from Kristin Zecchinelli
i catch a glimpse
a flash if pink
something wild this way comes.
who is that girl?
what is her story?
she is a momma,
fierce and loving.
she is a wife,
warrior and steadfast.
she is a woman,
heavy breasts and sagging belly. birthed 3 people into this world
she is an artist
she is the life of the party
mixes one hell of a long island iced tea
she is a little girl
insecure, afraid, bruised, good, wanting, trying, fixing
she is kristi, spidey, bubbles, momma, kristin,
mother lover friend homemaker hardworker quilter cook nurturer giver
kisser of boo-boos, maker of sheet forts
dreamer wisher believer
flawed (ever so)
but learning growing accepting all of these incarnations, all of these pieces of she.
knowing that even on her worst of days,
she is worthy.
she is enough.
she is… me.
