Becoming Vulnerable 30 Day Writing Challenge ~ Day 24:
So… I woke up today with tears in my eyes feeling everything and missing everyone. I cried about the things I perceive not to have in my life right now. Things I wanted for my life… for my family. Birthdays are a beautiful time for introspection… but not a time to beat ourselves up. Sometimes we measure our years to things we have accomplished or haven’t. So today I am choosing to focus on the things I DO HAVE… My LIFE! HEALTH! HAPPINESS! LOVE! GOOD PEOPLE AROUND ME!
And so I begin my day sending so much love to everyone I know and those I don’t know. I send you all HUGE hugs… THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR ALL THE LOVE YOU ARE SENDING ME ON THIS DAY… I AM RECEIVING ALL OF IT!
There was a time…
There was a time I never cried.
People thought I didn’t feel
they thought I didn’t bleed
they believed I had no emotions
I was the Great Wall of China
Crumbling one stone at a time
on the outside they saw
on the inside
I was a fairyfly
there was a time I didn’t give a f%ck
I learned early to be this way
I learned that I shouldn’t care about “no one…”
because “no one cared about me”
when you’re small its easy to get trampled…
so I fought back
I never let them see me
then one day…
my six foot frame began tumbling
opening like the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe
this is what tears mean to me
to get lost in them
a heightened place
a sacred space
releasing all my body no longer wants to carry
I celebrate my born day! (warmup prompt by Alicia Anabel)
