I put a ring on my finger

I put a ring

On my finger

Under the New Moon

Last night


I made a commitment

To love myself



To remind myself

Of beauty

In ugly times


To give myself

The freedom

I need

To breathe


To speak my Truth

To state my needs

To express myself fully


Even if my voice shakes

Even if it’s unpleasant

Even if it will offend someone

Even if it is scary

Even if I will end up alone


As I’m not lonely

When I’m alone

I’m still loved and supported

Held and witnessed

By myself


And so

Under the New Moon

Last night

I married myself

As this is where it all begins

In the Love

To myself
