i'm convinced

It all makes sense to me now.
It wasn't until she told me what he called her.
A "bald-headed nigger."
Congratulations, student.
You cut her that time.

I'm glad I wasn't there.

I didn't know she'd had cancer.
I still don't know what kind.
Or where it ate away at her body.
I didn't ask.
I can't picture anything harming her.
I can't picture that with one of the strongest women I know.

Bet you didn't know, student.
The strength.
The empathy she now carries.
From earthly pain wisdom can be acquired.
At least I think so.


I'm convinced.

"When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom."-Proverbs 11:2
