True Grit

“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”-e.e. cummings

True Grit

by Carmen H Gray

Grit

Is the wayward

Fragment

That has tried to settle

Into you

Weighed heavily

On you

That you finally

Accept

And surround

With layers

Of your real self

Creating

A rare

And precious

Gem
