To my spine

To those who just happen to find

To all whom I have ever been entwined

I love you.


Even if our love has gone askew

Even if you are someone I never knew


Thank you.


For strength, support, smiles, and laughter


I will admire any manners, door holders, road rage, and insults from here on after


Over the years,

I may have shed some tears, 

but because of every one of you

I have overcome my fears.


Solid as bone and strong as rock


We no longer write our lessons in sidewalk chalk


This poem is about: 
My family
My community
