this is not a poem (about trust)

to me
is the middle school support group
for kids with divorced parents
we met weekly

speaking in all the ways we can to each other
and to our own selves too - remembering that once we put our shit on the paper we don't have to show anyone/everyone the paper.

trusting myself first

trusting my friends after _____________________
trusting my family _________________ or not _________________ because ___________
trusting myself __________________
trusting myself __________________
trusting myself __________________

getting comfortable with __________________________ because the past is not changing!
getting comfortable with __________________________ because it is life

the electricity of our love
powering cellphones texting digital love letters flooding the radio waves with our songs every tv show glorifies our bodies and intellect we share wisdom with each other in every newspaper article we

never stop writing
for all those girls you know
who can't say it
for yourself--all the times you didn't say it

trust yourself
