Tide

Now that I’m grown

I finally know the truth

I see the beauty in my ugly

I feel the power in my pain

I’ve overcome the anger

I’ve outgrown the blame

I have no room for self-loathing

No time left for shame

The war may be over

But I still remain

vulnerability takes courage

I wear mine with pride

I am unstoppable

I am the tide
