Hanging Myself

rope

My purpose in life is not to fill yours

I didn’t accept an invitation at birth to sit in your empty spaces and listen to you rust and groan

The path you take, yours alone

I did not sign up by simply being born

Swallow the air you breathe, expand and contract with gentle flow or selfish anger as you must

Leave me be while I tend to my own

The discomfort you feel

Keep it off my shoulders and pack it away as you please

I wasn’t put on this Earth to spiritually flat line while being continually cut off at the knees

The house you built is not my home

I have shown up time and again, open and free, full of love

Intentions of hope

Hanging myself

By my own rope

  1. I had to sit with this one a bit, let it bounce and flow in my mind. Whoa, Alisa. You tapped into something with this one, like you truly HAD to get it out. Peace to you.
