curly hair
fun and free
fit for rebirth
I think of it sometimes
and wonder
if I’d still feel like me
with those curls
so long after chemo
I loved them enough
that honestly
a future perm
is not out of the question

reborn blood
healthy and new
it was what mattered most
for a time
but perform and produce
were smuggled back in
I think of that too
the wellness gift
when it was enough
and I was enough
just being His
and free


He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit. – Titus 3:5

Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. – 2 Corinthians 4:16
