This Is My Strength

Published by Family Friend Poems May 2021 with permission of the Author.

When you left,
I immediately deleted your number and pictures
and pulled our memories from the wall.
This is my strength.
This is how I know I’ll survive.
I cried as I erased you,
but I erased you anyway.
I wished you back,
but I still opened my hands
and let you go.


Lauren Bowman is a 33-year-old writer born and raised in north Florida, USA. Her debut collection of poetry and prose, The Evolution of a Girl, was born from a period of exploration, growth and discontent that so many of us face while attempting to understand where we fit into this world. Lauren’s writing is blunt, bold, and speaks with raw honesty about her personal struggles with relationships, self-acceptance, and self-love.
