Headline Poem 10/18/14 -- This Year

This Year

I watched as you shed 
layers of anger,
replacing them 
with skin 
smooth with wisdom,
aged genuinely 
with love 
I watched as you became 
strong enough to hold up 
parts of the sky 
drenched with abandonment
and inches of the earth 
afraid of their own shake, 
growing and 
with rich new soil 
better for planting, 
but still
