Birthright

Chaos, to which she gave her life

Dedicated to abandoned promises, re-heating left over dreams

Fixing broken men to stake claim over their pain,

an initiation to intimacy.

I saw tenderness

where there was control,

Love where neglect nurtured

itself into status quo.

Dad signed his letter of resignation from our lives

Mom notarized, signed as his savior.

Quietly sewed up a void until lies of normalcy

prevailed
