the waters bend.

Y O U, are love.
are a river deep & rich.
told by one too many
to be a wound.

Y O U, are worth.
are force in flowers bloomed.
believed that your queendom
is a hollow space
for them to crawl into.
convinced that your body
was just a hiding place,
at best a temporary refuge.

Y O U, are atone.
are how your heart has not been treated
as a home,
but still the waters bend will bring baptism.
transcended into unstoppable seas.

Y O U, are flow.
are forgiveness in full
to show them how easily
the river never stops moving.
