Under Construction

Stephanie Bennett-Henry – creating new – leaving what was imposed

Stephanie Bennett-Henry

It was inside the breaking where

I sifted through the pieces of myself

to find the ones worth salvaging.

When I was finished, I was empty-

handed, walking away without myself,

holding only a promise that I would

start over from scratch and rebuild

myself into who I wanted to be.

All the pieces I left behind had the

fingerprints of someone else along

the edges and I only want to be from

my own making, not bits and pieces

of who someone else told me to be.

I am under construction;

to be continued… until I’m whole alone.
