Recognizing Privilege

I think of how lucky I am just to being me

.

I didn’t ask to be born but

I won the genetic lottery

.

I don’t have to do much

just a little mascara, maybe some blush and now

it looks like I’m made of pixie dust

.

I truly am blessed to be born in the skin I am in

Awareness (Living Closer)

It’s interesting that now the more I am in your presence, 

the more anxiety I feel. 

It’s as if I now have more opportunity,

to fail. 

.

Living with you is a delight and a frieght,

for I sit at home and dream of ways to be ‘right’…

to be more perfect for you;

but you never asked me to change, 

did you?

.

So all this anxiety and fear in my head

comes upon me

because of my own

negative disposition

to self assessment.

Foreign Thoughts

I just experienced the strangest thought…

.

not strange, I suppose not.

but it was a foreign thought.

.

.

.

I thought to myself as I wrote down some prose

~maybe I should edit or censor myself

.

.

But No. 

.

.

then who would I be?

.

.

Except an ungenuine poet 

unraveling at the seams. 

.

Destroyed in Love

Pain in loss,

is not a reflection of how much one loved,

but a reflection of how hard it is to let go

The attached mind,

wishes many things,

fleeting things,

could stay.

The fleeting things,

are those intense

heart thumping,

stomach turning,

butterfly vomit feelings…

Those feelings

that if lasted forever

could destroy us.

but what if it did?

What if by chance,

one finds one,

and the feelings continue to cycle…

would we be destroyed in love?

would it even be so terrible?

I wish to not feel pain,

but to be destroyed in love.

Dear Reader,

Dear Reader,

This is my letter to you,

It’s what you need

after reading my heart

and sharing in my pain

and sharing in my joy

and sharing in my struggle to balance.

 

Thank you, cannot express the gratitude I feel

You have given me open space to heal

To allow my words to free flow as they might

and in doing so you give my heart flight

I share your struggles as you share mine

We’re all on a different journey, but trying to find

The same better version of ourselves

in each and every one of us

You see it in me,

and I see it in you…

so let’s continue to uplift each other

and to our own path stay true.

 

Be not strayed away by the judgements of each day,

just keeping releasing what your soul has to say

your life is for you anyway…

so take time to do what is important to you

and allow your heart to shine through.

 

Uplift your brothers and sisters,

as you see their journey

and may watch them stumble

Help show them their world will not crumble

Their world will not fade and dissolve into pain-

for a new friend can make one feel more sane.

Reach out to those who need help

just for the sake of sharing love

…you will find peace in your heart

and love will come back to you

 

Peace and Love,

Namaste, from my heart to yours,

Jessa
