Tried and Tested / by Britta Badour

if i had never tested my light
if i had waited
What good would i know
What darkness could i repel
What would i have learned about repairing tires and pot holes
or recovering from kisses made from lips that run dry of trust and loving words to console?

I love the pain i endured
it gives me gratitude for the small things
like making up my mind
I am heavenly in my choices
I am heavenly in my curves
I love the pain i endured
