I Am Me

Simply

I am scared but never fearful

I once lost myself deeply in love

I found myself because of this

It will always be a successful relationship for this reason

I have made poor choices that came with a landslide of shame and remorse

I learned the importance of never putting my values down

I breathe them now

Those values line the soles of my shoes

I don’t regret my choices for they have taught me

I stumble and I fall

I always get back up

It will happen again

I am not perfect

I never will be nor do I care to chase illusions of such

My humility and compassion live in my fabric because of this

My glass is not half empty nor half full

My life and attitude are not measured by a glass

I am open and vast and ever-expanding

My heart is pure and this is all the perfect I need

I make no apologies for who I have been or who I am

I am strength and gentle in equal force

Simply

I am me.

Perfection

moon

The moon tonight

So delicately outlined

Perfection in its dark and light

Shadows in between intuitively play

You must have been perched on the moon this evening

There is no other reason that I can logically see

For such incredible beauty

Shining down on me

Laying in Her Soak

bath

Laying in her soak, eyes gently closed

Her reflection in the mirror gracing me as I pass in stride

Pulled with ease, an awakening

Her, she is

Exquisite art

Long in her relaxed stretch

Hand loosely dangling over the edge, inviting touch

The light catching every detail in her uniform perfection

Magnificence

She is to be written with gentle and adoring love

Painted with honorable and brilliant colors

Photographed with exaltation and respected attention

The universe tapped on my shoulder as I was passing by

Reminding me of the gift in my heart

Drenched as I lay in her soak
