Woman of Layers

The pretty bands of agate
Different phases of my life
Like rings of a tree added each year
The undesirable circles of the past
Permanent cannot be removed
No eraser for the days gone by
But integrated to make life whole
Gratitude because they made me
Instead of regret for their happening
Each day builds and teaches
The layers that make the woman I am
The steps that take me to the next
The person that knows better tomorrow
I may never forget
But I don’t need a continual loop
Of that which strengthened me
I only need to remember
That I am strong
