I wrote this poem as a vow of my fidelity to self. Sometimes we were caught up in the swirl of other people especially our loved ones. I wrote this to remind me to be faithful to one’s self before anything else.
Your dance is not my dance
Your swirl is not my swirl
My journal is for my own reading
My sacred space
I am more than the sum of my experiences, triumphs and joy.
Before being a Mother, a Sister or a Daughter
My fidelity first is
To my Self.
