Getting It Right

Getting It Right
Form: Free Verse

I’m older now
but probably not much wiser
seasons turn and years go by
one transitioning into the next
it doesn’t bother me now
this journey has reached its destination
with me content in my own skin
so, what if they still get the name wrong
it’s not done to hurt me
sometimes I don’t answer
as I forget that name was me
yet love gets us by just the same
and I’m no longer the rebellious child
demanding it must be my way
when the reality of truth is
love between mother and child is the way
it is my strength during the good times
and my solace in the hard
and that is worth so much more
than getting a name right
