I Came out as Thunder and Lightning

I was notoriously absent
Missing in action
By Me

I was in the throes of myself
Yet did not see or feel
Any of my soul self

Until a murder
Of a woman 
I barely knew

She was my best friend's sister
And she was fabulous!
All of us were in awe of her since she was ten

She lived her life on her own terms
The original wild child
The female fonze, before the fonze existed

When someone murdered her,
I was reminded that my shy, 
unassuming self was 
not fully living me

So I came out 
as thunder and lightning
Blazing and spitting, kicking ***

Everyone stood back,
Thinking I had lost my mind
When I really
had found
my soul.
