Button Poetry Coming of Age


I'm learning how to be a woman
Attempting to grow unto myself without stretching out my skin or leaving any new sins untied I

Got a whole lot of soul
Just enough space to hold all the galaxies inside of myself that I can't even name

My name is Taylor

It is derived from a Latin word which means to cut and though I know my mother's colonized tongue is partially responsible

For this unfortunate mishap, I like to imagine that
24 years ago an angel appeared to her in a dream and said

Woman unto you a child is born and her tongue will be made of steel and her words will cut like a blade

Mama, I hope I live up to my name

#depression poem

There are nights when I am wild vine warnings
When I am summer garden in days when I am plump sky belly filled an aching loud thunder and rain

Stormy weather but calls me on the occasion of a drought
Drought has never known me all this rain means

I'm still growing and I got the stretch marks to prove it once I
Complained to God about how clumsy my confidence could be and in the very next instant

These are the exact words that came to me. He said no
No, daughter, you're not perfect you are

#Everything


Perfection could not be you are the reason Beauty woke from its sleep it dreamt of you last night

Called your name last night last night
I looked into the mirror and I realized that I was a reflection of the divine

So to doubt myself would be nothing short of heresy. I am walking

Scripture I


Am free verse I am the illest freestyle
God was spitting in the site for the unimaginative liked to call the beginning life
is just beginning

But I understand it won't always be this poetic. It will lack rhyme and reason
unfold in very peculiar and
And on the days I find this truth

When the shame of my mistakes is ready to make a meal of me. I hear God say

If only you would trust me
There is no shame in your mistakes, you're just learning to remember your name is Taylor
so when you stand

#straight

Hold just fine straight as a razor's edge carve and arch in your back and walk the way your mama

taught you to remember you are holding galaxies inside of you so when you stride

Balance the orbit of your hips like the world is depending on you young woman rise

The world is depending on you Oh
