Give Me Grace

by Olivia Nolan 


Give me the grace to have no answer
The space to act it out
The dignity to know
This is not for show
And trust
It’s not for clout

Give me assurance that you won’t be
A source of any violence
That my being here
In public and clear
Be no reason
For my silence

Give me comfort in learning
Just how dangerous it can be
To step into skin
Be sewn, soaked in
And live
Unashamedly 

Give me time to understand myself
And all of my innards
They move so much
I have been clutched
By a nausea 
Of holy glimmera
