Poem: Playing the Fool

I just had my therapy session

And the card I pulled with her

The fool

The fucking fool

Ohh coyote medicine

Repeating the same lessons

Until you do things differently

How you do not amuse me

I do not want to stand in line

I want to go outside

And cry

Walk in the water

Become a puddle too

That the past five months

I’ve been living a lie

Relapsing

Not eating enough

Trying to control

The uncontrollable

Spending money on stupid shit

You know

The usual

Essentially

Whatever your taste of numb chooses to be

Ha!

The fucking fool I am

3 years strong

And 5 months later

Here we are sweet cheeks

Right back

To the fool

But it’s all gravy baby

I’ve got a game plan

I’ve got my team

And nothing

Will ever

Ever

Be stopping me

From achieving my dreams

Being the empowered woman

I was born to be

So this is for you

This is for me

For the strong women

For the brave women

Whom are helping themselves

Rewriting their stories

To change the world

This beautiful world

Despite their shit

Till one day

They are free
