I Was Not Sure – Written Thursday 26th February 2009 (Aged 34)

I Was Not Sure

i was not sure
but i found a princess –
to write me a nursery rhyme
an artisan –
to make my time
i was not sure
i clambered down from the tree
that for a while
had felt like the only place to be
and i reclaimed my smile

i was not sure
i needed a calendar girl
to give me dates for my future
to plant flowers in my garden
and together,
we both find nature
what could i do
these days continue to change
all i do is count the words
and remember the words
found myself a nurse
someone to tend this hurt
