courage Poetry

Roz Weaver presents the flutter of courage it takes to love yourself in a world that tries to make us fit in.

by Roz Weaver

Please bear with me
for every time
I open my mouth
and my heart runs out
for in a world of standards
and this-is-what-you-should-have’s
it’s giving everything
to love
myself.
