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

Guilt-Free 

When I spend too long waiting, 

I lose inspiration. 

Too many thoughts flow all at once. 

.

.

Poetry is like sex to me

.

.

First thing in the morning,

before I have time to fire up my brain,

I like to fire up my heart. 

.

I use my heart to control my body. 

.

I can feel my fingers tingling 

with sweet sensation

of foreplay…

.

Waiting,

to be used. 

.

The less I think about what to do

.

the easier, better and more natural it is. 

.

I find comfort in being alone in my head,

first thing in the morning especially;

It allows me time to do what I love-

Guilt Free

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. 

.

Sex in Hunger

Being around people while eating food

is very intimate to me,

for me it’s the same intimacy

I feel when I sexually reveal myself.

 

I am on the cusp of living and dying.

I pick my food carefully, with intention,

like I pick a partner.

I am hungry for that which I crave,

and that which I think will satisfy me….

Ravishly, whole heartedly, digging into

my tempting treat…

allowing this feeling to

overtake me,

satisfy me,

release me

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
