In the midst

To be present in the midst of change…

Remain in my heart
Dare feel it’s uneasy restlessness
Stay in it
Not absorb another
Or give myself away

Leave questioning thoughts
Simply let myself be, as I would was I calm itself

Plant my feet deep
Proudly, vigorously, naturally,
Owning my body
Radiating remarkable spirit
Channeling through love
(and love only)
Claiming my right

Breaths, (deep!)
Before
Talk

Space

Focus
