She's A Badass.
She stares at the stick screaming a pink plus. Trembling she tells him... tells her Mom. Terrified, she buys a new book hoping to figure out what to expect. She's a badass.
Heavily medicated, young and afraid she cries to go home. Please? We will try again tomorrow... but Baby B couldn't wait that long, she had to push on. She's a badass.
Twin beds in one room, a single bed in hers. Broken, defeated, lonely. She gets up alone and takes them to school. Turns toward her job instead of back to her bed. She's a badass.
Divorcee, second round. Her toddler girl, the knot in a cruel tug of war. Shame imprisons her nights and duty her days. Still, she loves, guides, and nurtures. She's a badass.
High school, latch key kids, working around the clock to fund their future, leaving too much to chance. She opens her mind. Listens in her exhaustion. Does her best. She's a badass.
Revolving door roommates, empty twin room, teenager bridging parental divide. Constantly asking forgiveness, piece by piece puts the baggage down. She's a badass.
The quiet empty bedrooms, long lonely evenings, a table set for one. Lost. No idea how she got here. Takes a deep breath, a trepid step. She's a badass.
She fights the lonely and befriends herself. Stretches, grows, forgives, sharpens, empowers herself with grace, surrounds herself with love. She’s finding herself. She's a badass.
The rooms are all full, for a moment the family is whole... she looks across the table at their futures so bold. Kind, generous, loving, all. She breathes it in deep. She's a badass.
(By the way... you. You are the badass.)
