Reflective light we are,
Being aware of the darkness
Each of us bear...
As we grow,
Ignorance lifts and comes around again..
Who am I to become more,
From every experience,
More of myself,
Exudes from within to without,
An ongoing of every angle…
A gentle walk back,
A gentle momentarily regression,
To remember where I was,
Where I was when I was faithless towards myself,
A weathered damsel lost in many arms,
At their opinionated & expected, “Disposal.”
I am lovingly, rawly reminded,
By what led me into my own arms,
Holding my own heart & truth,
Replenished in faith towards myself,
The confidence and reliance on self,
Grew into this skin, these eyes, these hands, feet, body...
*Remembering, does not make me sore,
But seriously empowers me,
To know the differences I made, matter in my life.
Realizing and discerning,
The extremes of light and dark,
Is the how, that unraveled and led me back to me,
Plus my faith in humanity, in my own humanity.*
Loving myself, no matter which way,
From every angle, holding this memory,
Captivates what fuels me every day forward.
Being aligned in my reflective, awareness,
I am more than capable to become more,
Than who I used to be, for who I am to become,
Is only more, and more myself….
As we grow,
Ignorance lifts and comes around again,
And all that reveals, expands us,
To become, more than what arms
We used to find ourselves in,
Or the ones we chased, or the circles,
That led to us sabotaging ourselves...
We can always fall back into the arms,
Readily available, within us,
The ones, we trust, know, have, and extend,
From the universe within,
Coming from love,
Coming from faith,
Coming from our living proof,
Our permission, our growth,
Our truth, illuminated through which we chose-choose,
Still, becoming…More loved, more treasured,
More appreciative… You, I, me, we, are,
As is, and in our processes, no matter our pace...

To remember, to embrace,
What was, for it led us here!
