just because i am a warrior

a 51year old survivor of verbal violence

of violence of all types

does not mean

i am not fucking tired.

because i am.

tired of explaining myself

tired of finishing the dry white wine from

italy; when i was told only red grapes grew

only producing red wine

which was a fucking lie

like everything else

you whispered.

i am a first generation italian-american who grew up in southern new jersey. Life is amazingly beautiful and devastating. Sometimes in the same day.
