Once

Once, I was told

to value no other

but myself.

Once, I fought with

my mind,

my increasingly bad health.

Once I believed 

in a god 

so fruitful,

so overflowing with love,

yet when I looked above,

I saw no hope 

in the future

nor in the passing of ghosts.

Once, I was a girl

now a woman,

who values no other

but herself.
