Young Weekends

As a child

I use to spend

My weekends with my aunt

Playing games

While asking honest questions

To the only person

I felt was able to

Give me the answers I needed

Protecting me from harm’s way

Sharing with me

Stories of family members

I never got to meet

Giving me my history

And my freedom

To be who I am

  1. Omg! I love this ❤️❤️ It’s raw and real and as an auntie who tries to offer up unapologetic truth, this post is very special. Everyone needs an Auntie. I’m so glad you had someone in your corner Alex! 😊
