blurred vision

perception

often misguided

misinterpreted

deceptive

you want me

to accept it?

this misperception

of me

take some time

ask me questions

learn my lessons

open your mind

I am not just this thing

or that thing

not one or the other

I’m a mother

a student

a friend

a sister

a lover

a poet

an artist

I know

where my heart is

where my love lies

what makes my soul stir

I’ve learned my value

and my worth

you too,

should take a moment

soak it in

I am more

than just this thing

or that thing

more than

your misperception

of me.
