Being yourself

A reality in progress

Posted on Updated on

Once it was only a whisper

persistently reminding me

of an essence I wasn’t ready to set free

once I was too sensitive to the weakness of others

willing to excuse their limited reality

making myself smaller

to not step on their toes

to not be unjust

to others than myself

but not anymore

Destroy the last fragments of acceptance to conform to structures suffocating the truth in my heart

turn my whisper into a powerful song and let this truth resonate through everything I do

cut away my eagerness to accommodate other people’s needs when they merely echo ignorant manipulation

enable me to recognize with all clarity the path I’m walking

and give me the courage to continue forward with open eyes

mobilize all my resources and let them ripple through this world

allow me my softness

nurture my love

remove what doesn’t serve me

A Whole Life In A Second

Posted on Updated on

 

For a second I was turned around

and in my confusion started walking

in the direction I was just coming from

For a second I was re-evaluating the validity

of insights already received

For little more than a second I was considering

if conforming was really such a bad thing

if maybe I could fit in that box

if I just sacrificed myself a little

crushed myself smaller

lobotomized myself easier

then maybe I could fit

During that second my spirit started crying

the world became too loud

and I was reminded of everything that love shouldn’t be

It only took a second

to live through several versions of life

and to choose the one

where my spirit doesn’t cry

 

Perfectly Imperfect

And then there are days where I look at myself in the mirror and simply have to say; You big freak!

 

Never Mind The Audience

Posted on Updated on

avoid the temptation to put on a show

strip down to simple honesty

don’t fool the world

avoid the temptation to hide

your heart knows what’s important

don’t fool yourself

have the courage to be naked

never mind the audience
