I hope you win.
So many have doubted you.
So many have not returned the love you gave.
You have done your dance alone for so long that if someone were to reach for your hand, you would be afraid.
You fear abandonment and being misunderstood.
You fear mistreatment.
You fear growing old without finding the thing that was supposed to make you peaceful and powerful.
You fear love and how it really looks undressed and filter free.
You walk alone because for now it is what is best.
Because it is a time to listen.
I hope someday
because you did.
