With broken tools and a bent back
I set about restoring my dignity.
In men's eyes it appeared
an impossible task
Yet I knew ' you knew
I could do it.
Night and day I pushed and pulled at
the holy vessel ' hoping to see and
feel the clarity I now possess
Levitating to peaceful grounds '
Transcending common emotions
of getting and spending
I lay claim to the piece that
This space I guard with pride
Love throbs in my breast
and in this moment of oneness
I feel wanted
I often escape to my tranquility
base only to return with
renewed confidence to address my
role in this cosmic dance
