You & I

You step

I step

I push

You pull

The scrapper

The antagonizer

Verbal sparing

Shoves everyone away

Inability to match- 




A lot to handle

Too little time

Not wrong, not bad 

It simply is what it is


Will take time

Reads like a book

Openly taunting 

Candor to the max

You step

I step

I push 

You pull

You a you

I an I


To the max

With a twist

We’ve got each other’s


Believe in each other’s 


Hope for each other’s 


Just not together 

Journey alone

Walking alone

It’s always been so 

Regardless of 




You a you 

I an I

There is nothing

You can’t do

When you set 

Your mind to it

Every time

You step

I step

I push

You pull

You will

I will 

When we’re ready

For now

You & I are just…

You a you


I an I

Many have shared that I am the strongest woman they know. I would disagree... when life kicks you in the teeth there is only one place to look and that is UP! I will be sharing my poetry, random thoughts, my hopes, my dreams, defining my strength and my faith. I'm honest, raw and real. I'm writing more for me, but perhaps someone will find my words that will help you in a profound way
