Sun hits my face

Close my eyes and squint

Treasure is in my heart

But only cowards even try.

The light doesn’t calm me

It encourages

All my bad behavior.

Whatever it is

That keeps me

From becoming who I could be

With a man that deserves me

Holds me within all the protection

I crave.

A part of me is missing

Lost somewhere between

“You aren’t good enough”


“I’m not man enough for you.”
