#NationalPoetryMonth – Day 6


Tender Mercy

my vulnerabilities
laid bare at your feet
do not mistake them
for weakness
they are full of thunder and roar
born of the fire in my blood
the might of my will
nestled within
my tender heart
and yours for
the keeping

April is National Poetry Month and to celebrate, I’m going to post a poem everyday. I’m way behind schedule, but intend to amend that state of being today. This exercise in my love of words began last year, inspired by the wondrous Jason Reynolds and my writing promptress Jena Schwartz. It was fun and full of magic and makes me so excited to see what pieces 2017 produces. They won’t be perfect, they never are, but they’ll be here, every day of April. I hope you stop by and enjoy the words and maybe even feel moved to share some of your own.
