it was eight days ago that she called me on my bluff
she responded to my email
and encouraged me to not wait too long before I wrote back
she claims she doesn’t bite lol
she’s a well known bad ass Canadian writer & poet
who I admire 
because she is transparent, raw & bold
and her writing … when I read it the first time
it’s like the voice inside my head that has been silenced for so long
fear has kept me silent
afraid of being judged
she writes & responds as if she’s standing right in front of me 
and we’re having this conversation
I am going to write her back and bare my soul
she runs on authenticity which mirrors my life long goal
her words below have haunted me
since the day I first read her work
I know after reading her piece called 'Boss Ass Bitch'
that I'm a Boss Ass Bitch
just waiting to break free
every time I read those words
it’s as if my heart is pleading with me
begging me …
when will you finally give in & trust the process of life Wild?
when will you hang up the gloves?
how long will you wait to use the gifts you were inherently born with?
how long will you conform to what society dictates?
c'mon Wild, I thought you were a rebel …?
take off your gloves b'cuz
you’re already a Boss Ass Bitch!
