To Think

To think, I thought my children did not need me
To think, I thought my life would never matter
To think, I thought I would never be worthy of love
To think, I thought I could never come out
To think, I thought I would never go back to school
To think, I thought I would never be an artist
To think, I thought I would never write poetry
To think, I thought I would never make a difference
To think, I almost took my life
To think, my children needed me more than I could ever guess
To think, my life does matter to family and friends
To think, I found the love of my life
To think, I am out as a lesbian
To think, I am majoring in psychology and art
To think, I am an artist
To think, I write poetry
To think, I started an organization to help the homeless
To think, I almost took my life
What was I thinking?
