it’s complicated

some days she is confident
handling whatever comes
some days she feels listless
lost in the doldrums

some days she laughs & laughs
she’s a joy to be around
then the black dog rears its head
& she goes underground

there are days when she’s gorgeous
her smile lights up the room
sometimes she’s overwhelmed
by fear, by doubt, by gloom

one day she’s a lion
with a terrifying roar
other days she’s a lamb
in a flower-filled meadow floor

you can love or hate her
however you’re inclined
fact is she’s unforgettable
& not easily defined
