I NO LONGER FEAR MYSELF (poem)

fearself

there was a time when I was younger

i would look into the mirror trying

to remember, forgetting myself

night day dizzily masquerading

within around me until I crept

deep inside hiding swiftly

worried and fretful about

my own thoughts acknowledging

my differences fearing neglect

but worst that outcast loss–

splitting myself I trudged

ungracefully, smiling always smiling

inwardly imploding this nebulous

dark star retreating

not willing to face myself

undesiring of feeling

numbly shrouded in black

no one comes in and nothing

escapes this severe lack

but belief of control

and yet the sun shone

brightly upon me still the moon

ripped me up and in this

light glowing transparent

I fought to hold onto all

I should have let go long ago

until I surrendered bowing

down to the Divine

releasing my supposed flaws

allowing my past to be a

lesson and i learned what

we all know before birth to love

love thyself and love all others true

there is no greater lesson

love is all there is

love is all that is

I am love

You are love

We are love

One love

I have no need for fear

no desire for separation

BREAK ME WHOLE

over and over again

for forever I shall love
