When I look into your eyes, a warm coating of understanding
suddenly wraps around me.
I am seeing you differently
and not because our relationship status has changed.
It drizzles down my neck, my throat.
I am looking at you, seeing different
because inside me,
I am a new person.
A new shape of a being.
I now look at you with strength and confidence
I am powerful because
I finally am conscious
of not only who I want to be or how I want to be,
but that the change has taken shape.
I am not afraid of
I know I would never do what I’ve done
I am a good, a better
I am ready to love
looking into yours,
