rising, rushing round.
Calling them out and
changing the game for ever more.
The playbook has been worn
the page’s edges rough, tattered
I’ve been playing and panting
while holding my breath.
So I benched myself in order to reevaluate my life.
I’ve practiced forgiveness a lot.
I have breathed full breaths
even exhaled completely.
I’ve stopped expecting and hoping
for things to be
or not to.
Focusing on what is.
Opening my heart to love and patience.
Visualizing who I AM, who I wish to be now.
I AM daring to make goals.
Celebrating my accomplishments.
Smoothing sides and angles
connecting pieces once warped and wrangled
shoring up to true.
Rewiring my chemical responses.
With ease and grace I lead myself
to become who I shall.
Taught by, yet unencumbered by, the past.
For I AM to be what I will to be now.
