It’s still me.

I read about a woman
Who had her face
Torn off by a bear


And after an emergency
Surgery decided against
Cosmetic work


She said “I want
To be able to look at
Young girls and say,


I have these scars
AND I’m still beautifully me.”
It reminded me


Of the morning after
The abortion
I felt so empty


But it had happened
And it wasn’t going to
Just change back


I went through that
And I’m still


Still grateful
Still loving
Still hopeful


Still want motherhood.
I went through that
AND I am still beautifully me.
