I’ve been told that I am most beautiful while on stage

That the person seen in coffee shops, at church and at work

Is not the woman that is present on stage


And she is not absent of fear,

She just turns into something beautiful instead

She weaves words and letters into poems

Because she understands that’s what she was made for

And there are less apologies on her tongue

Because she realizes she has nothing to be sorry for


I learn from her on a daily basis,

She reminds me that I have always been that woman

And I will always be that woman


I have yet to learn however,

how to bridge the gap between her and me

For now, she will stay the third party image

i always feel as though I am intruding on

A  girl, a woman

In her purest form


Watch her glow
