TODAY I SENT A LETTER

  1. A letter I wrote 2 weeks ago
  2. I wrote drafts and drafts and drafts
  3. All by hand, slowly and carefully
  4. I thought about keeping it in a drawer
  5. Because with this letter I estrange myself from my uncle
  6. And I have no idea the reaction I will receive
  7. Or what the rest of my family will hear
  8. But when you're an adult
  9. You get to make choices about the people who receive your time and energy
  10. And that includes toxic family members
  11. And I owe it to myself to steer clear of people who are harmful to my health
  12. So today I sent a letter
