I need validation
for showing up
for my presence
as a human being

of my brilliant self
carved out within 
this time frame

For I am
not alone
I came here
on a mission

With another soul
that checked out
sooner than 

It left me
and heartbroken
in this experiment

I’m just
learning to piece
my heart together
to become whole again
