Poems in the Park

I chose to come home

To myself

Like a prodigal child

I was ungrateful

Blind to all

The wonders in my life

So I set out on a journey

Searching for acceptance

In

The tempting kisses of others

Addictive embraces of highs

Seduction of unknown locations

Only to realize

Everything I need exists

In

The swell of a hip

The roundness of a belly

Plumpness of a breast

Loving tender heart

Protective unyielding arms

The sweet cradle of

A mother — me

Welcoming her daughter home
