Tight, bright, trying to bloom;
softening, opening, grounding
myself – allowing room,
for who? for what?
Small, tall, trying to grow;
breathing, feeling, healing
myself – accepting slow
progress, why not?
Yearning, learning, trying to change;
stopping, noticing, being
myself – experiencing range,
connection, don’t stop!
Being, seeing, knowing I’m she;
beautiful, powerful, full of
myself – loving, courageous, free,
me, authentically me.
Dedicated to Kimberly and Robyn who inspired and challenged me to write a poem! Honouring that life’s a journey, celebrating being vulnerable.
