Not for purchase

Your judgmental gaze cannot melt
the lines of my mistakes, they have become
collective beauty I hold as my reward for living
unimaginable shapes to fill with crayoned hues
I am my own coloring book

  1. This is magnificent, Ali – what a celebration of the blessings of our humanness. And the beauty.

    You are welcome to contribute this poem for #ForgivingFridays if you want to. It’s truly gorgeous.

    Much love.
