And So


I often think i am done

Whether sun

Or shadow fall on my face.

Even when a smile curves my lips

A battle may rage


This at any time.

I walk upon stone,

I walk upon dirt

Both hurt

When the weight is heavy.

Though i stand tall,

A smile curves my lips.

Each breath a blessing

As i fill my lungs with air,

As I stretch up to the sky with all my might

The weight gets lighter,

My feet less tender.

I look at my heart. 

It has no boundaries

Nor my mind in fact.

Every cell,

Every atom

At peace if I allow it to be.

And so it flows through me,

And so I am.


My Mind


My mind is playing the

“You can’t” game.


“You aren’t” ,

“You are too this or too that” game.

It is exhausting these climbs and the cliffs.

I fall.

Continually crawling back up.

Gravel on my knees,

Vines and thorns around my throat.

Reminding myself

Not to struggle so much

Against them


They just dig deeper into my flesh.

I close my eyes.


Count to three and open my eyes again.



her mind was quite broken you see.

for so long the road to healing has been most tedious.

she has had to learn to allow herself grace

and tenderness unapologetically

she has had to learn she does not need to justify this to


for even she was unaware that those wounds were too painful to touch

that even her skin was deeply bruised

with heart and mind

and this takes time

giving herself space to grow new strength


and nurturing her own roots

and spirit

which ultimately remain


love and tenderness for oneself grow freely when welcomed

and cared for unconditionally
