Learning to Love Me

She has pulled me through each iteration of myself
Stood by me in the morning light and pitch-dark night
Danced with absolute abandon to the music of my successes
Sat by my side in the deadly silence of my deepest depression
I cannot thank her nearly enough for all that she has suffered
And yet I sling more derogatory mud at her than ever deserved
See only short-comings and failings of her most arduous attempts
And struggle and battle against all that I have ever known
To appreciate, congratulate and truly love the water’s reflection
Of my most turbulent spirit fighting to find harmony with her soul
