Drawing Lines

line in sand

Learning to establish

and define myself

previously boundless

when to say “YES”

and HOW to say “NO”

exerting some power

developing control

protecting myself and others

in clear and intention ways

if not it’s all too easy

to be afflicted and cause pain

lines, definition, and boundaries are good

often things that are not well understood

so I’m placing the markers

and setting the limits

distinguishing between the lines

of the acceptable and the forbidden
