Tangled are the lights in the box of decorations
bumping bellies with the ornaments and tinsel garland
Handmade treasures filled with memories that are worth more than gold

…and After

Little victories bring the greatest satisfaction because it’s a reminder achievement is possible.


These times were the start of the darkness
The fuel of resentment for who I was
The growing hatred for what I looked like
The piercing anger towards my body
The self doubt and unworthiness that became my background music
