  • "Rope Burn"
    Pluck all the flowers
    From my space

    For you to color all my robes
    From crisp white to soft black.
    I won't prevent you
    From prying
    That nut
    (Once hard to crack).
    Just like Janet Jackson suggested
    In her song "Rope Burn,"
    I too have a confession:
    I am ready to learn.

When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
