today i’m reaching out
for myself at age 55
older me who still wears her silver hair long
strong woman who survived
and came out swinging
i want to read her writing
i want to know how she kept from dying
i want to know when her anger went away
i want to meet her sons
who forgave her
for everything she couldn’t give them
i need her to tell me that love
saved all of our lives
