She needed a moment. A time out. A peace out. She needed to get herself out of her thoughts and get herself back with… So she excited the four walls, walked up a hill and looked around. All around her were trees that helped her breathe and then she remembered to look up. You see… for a long time she had forgotten how the sky was her escape, her home away from home. She had been looking down for a while and trying to close her eyes during prayer, during meditation but her focus had been off. Shaky at best. So she found a perfect spot under an old tree and laid on the grass. According to yoga, she’s doing the corps pose, but if you ask her she is getting back to basics, being with the ground. Her body slowly changed its breathing and her eyes, it was like the first time a baby seeing Mama. She couldn’t stop smiling and was just focused on her home in the sky. Her mind was at ease, cool and calm. She, for a moment was untouchable.
I hope I will leave you with the love
the love that will push your heart
away from loneliness into faith
the love that will inspire you
to share it with the other
the love that will remind you
to pray for my soul
may I leave you with the love
when it is my time
may that be my legacy
Look at your life and think about if you are truly taking care of your own heart, thoughts, needs and wants. Do you have a hard time catching your own breath because you are running towards or away from something? Stop, put all the temporary stuff, the demands from the other and their threat of disappointment in the air and let the wind blow it all away. Keep yourself and breathe. Find that time, that space, that place where you are giving love to yourself without thinking of anything else in that moment but just me, myself and I. Yes, you have to hustle in this world hustle but be careful that this world is not taking too much away from you and not giving enough back.
Self love does not come
with a list of demands or deal breakers,
it is about feeding your soul with love
without caring about their big eyes
let go of the doubts that this world has given you
when the blessings knock on your door
remember that you are worthy and they are only meant for you
when you prayed for the blessings, you opened yourself up
you surrendered your ego and bowed your head in submission
now when they knock, hold your head up and open that door
accept them because you are meant to be
when love was found between two ordinary people
it gave them the gift of living their day dreams together
This bed is more important to me than a lover
This bed soaks up my tears
Keeps me warm from the cold
The home of my darkness and deep dimensions
This bed hears my prayers that I whisper silently at night.
Knows the story behind the words that I write.
This is the bed where I lay my head to rest
This bed is my one and only witness to my real life.
