Christmas Cup

// The girl with Christmas etched on her coffee cup
A special dose of magic needed to wake her up
To the possibilities and small joys so full
So that she remembers to live out her days wonder full
A name doubly meaning grace
But something she always struggled to embrace
She didn’t know how to accept completely
The beauty of it that covers her flaws freely
Born an old soul yet arriving earlier than expected
An accurate description in words
But everything always seemed to fit her
Celebrating coming alive in the December magic all collected
A contradiction of being messy outside-the-lines
With an inward tendency to fall exactly within the design
A heart that hopes to impact change
To lighten this heavy world and rearrange
So that the broken find out they can be made whole
And those looking for belonging find community and home
Creating art with everything within
She couldn’t contain it inside her skin
It explodes out in colors and ways yet undefined
But this is where the fire and love burns so bright //
