“You are only free when you realize you belong no place—­you belong every place—­no place at all. The price is high. The reward is great.”-Maya Angelou


Dear sister:

When you feel the discomfort
of not fitting in somewhere,

It means you have a shape.


I’m not perfect,
but I am trying.

Trying isn’t everything.
It doesn’t undo the mistakes I’ve made,
heal the people I’ve hurt,
or bring back the time I’ve wasted.

But it IS something.
It is not nothing.
