empancipation

four hundred and twenty days

went by and i finally understood

the reason why i held myself back

for so long while she suffered

all this time.

my mane girl finally said enough

telling me she knew my soul was ready

 

but needed to convince my mind

that old things are made to pass away

and she knew i wanted to be new again.

so my mane told my brain to let it go

to thaw out the right side  and live freely.

my body met the cold black chair

and the butterflies in my stomach

slowly began die one by one

and she told me that everything would be okay.

one strand after another

two strands then another

three strands then no more

she was okay

she was safe

my mane was free

and so am i.
