Poem: Bejeweled – 08/12/20

I am unsure,
but I have achieved my goal,
a glint, and a glint, a smile,
oh, how I shan’t actually fall.

I have created some light
amongst some gloom,
glow, glow, glow, darling,
this is none too soon.

Independent moments and
useless nerves,
why had I concerned myself with the
fear of explosions
and bombing of words around my heart
but then…

I am accepted for what I’ve done,
even though it is not approved,
I am being viewed as my age,
and decisions are mine for me to make,
triumph and gratitude,
there’s not much left to say.
