With your eyes open, your mouth closed, your ears attentive and your heart reflective - welcome to this woman's world!

I am...

I am the red in blood, the shine in sun
The fullness of the moon, the curl of your smile

I am the truth in your honesty
Witty words waiting their freedom
And just as I am all this
I am also all that

I am the fire that burns
The lie that hurts
The voice of fear
The reason we’re here
Cursed as Friday 13th
Forgotten as the child within

Hold me anyway, for I need it
Love me all the way, for I’m here
Because bad is the good that keeps us apart
Good is the bad that holds us together

So have me as I am,
Altering not the bad as you celebrate the good
And when the sun falls on my face, let the honesty I have shared
Be the first to our everlasting.
