Poetry of Stephanie Bennett Henry, Uncategorized

Take It 

I have too many flaws to name, 

larger through my own eyes. 

But the one flaw that suffocates me slowly

is the way I give too much of myself 

to people who never deserved me at all. 

There’s a certain stubbornness that 

never allows me to learn my lesson. 

So, here you go, take it! 

I would have given you part of me anyway.
