Choices

by Dieu

Little girl,
You are stronger than
you think.

Little girl,
You are more fragile than
you think.

And the cracks in you
are where
the rain water pools.

And the darkness in you
hides the light
that stains your skin
like the moon has kissed it.

And you have been silent
all these years
while your hands have tied knots
to an anchor that you carry.

And it sinks you deep
into the sea of unknown choices
and consequences.

Little girl,
You are more afraid than
you think.

Little girl,
You are more brave than
you think.
