Poem: Marry your Magnificence.

Today

I have decided

To go for gold

And marry

My magnificence

Ceremoniously choosing

And re-choosing

To honour her

With the vow

That promises

To no longer

Restrain her

Hide her

Mute her

Or fear

The repercussions

Of standing

In her glory

As if

I was born

As her

And for her

Divorced

From the

Multitude

Of stories

I have told

Myself

Otherwise

Picking my thoughts

From her pool

Of overflowing

Goodness

And allowing

My actions

To follow suit

Knowing

That in doing so

I have become

The wonder

I always was.
