NaPoWriMo 18 Incredible Woman


NaPoWriMo 18 
Incredible Woman

Your eyes water often
without you injuring any bulbs
thoughtless words slicing your insides
Accused you stand
of flirting with the sky
through an open window
Incredible
the way you dress up your bruises
and flaunt them as ornaments
The way the camera never gets the minute
before the smile grid locks
The way family albums
never let a wrong page flap open
Incredible
your children still believe in heaven
while lying in your ravaged lap
Incredible
that you keep bringing forth miracles
while giving up all pretenses
to a dignified life
Incredible 
that your world values you the least
while you live
and sings paeans to your incredibility
after you leave
