May poem sounds like

This poem is entitled ‘Checklist’.

“A thousand steps
You’ve walked ahead
You don’t look behind you
The emperor crowns you
No more playing games
No more power play
Unhealthy validation or escaping your problems through someone else’s
More love and acceptance for yourself
More individuality, integrity and purpose
Unique garments and protective stones
And working hard down to your bones
More kindness, drawing boundaries and looking outward
Less empty promises from men who are doubtful
More trusting yourself, wiser decisions and self respect
It appears I’ve had a lot of time to reflect
I am manifesting all I can so that I can be a better woman
And shielding myself from people who don’t have my best interests at heart, still a fragile human navigating it all from the start.”
