Birthday Gift Poem #1: See The Awesome

another revolution

around the sun

of mindedness… you’re not who you were then


intended communication

to be heard

even silent… when words can deform the meaning


adjusted celebration

of others

to yourself… to see you more and better, to heal you


charmed resignation

of expectations

in freedom… of your occupation, your holds, to your dreams


purposeful reclaimation

of growth

each year… a journey to discover, the awesomeness in you


Afterword: each year my dearest friend, my chomma, writes me a poem for my birthday. This is her 2023 poetic celebration of my life journey and our friendship. All credit to Amanda “Mando” Khoza.
