broken gladly

Moon Turtle Cookingmy shelter was nails above
my shelter was leather below
i wasn’t good enough
and i was punished for no

i did not want this for you
so when i saw you in my future
i knew what i had to do
frankenstein myself a new creature

the rebuild isn’t perfect
it’s built by human hands
flawed and highly suspect
a slave of faulty glands

but this version would self destruct
before it harmed your soul
this rag doll that i construct
is ugly but it’s whole

its button eyes have seen things
that a child should never see
its sinew threads hold vibrations
of moral injury

the stuffing in its head is torn up
tapestries emrbroidered
with lies crafted to shore up
a twisted world order

enough will happen to you out there
you don’t need me to be the one
to teach you that true care is rare
and life has games but not all fun

i hope i have done my job
of building a survivor
not a fear reactive blob
but a brave proactive thriver

watching you become
the woman you are today
i hope i’ve been the kind of home
you want to be someday

but if something’s not right
don’t let it be unspoken
it should be brought to light
and then be gladly broken
