I can see myself in others,
but I must not lose sight of who I am.
This is my journey.
My unique fire.
It is my responsibility to find my passion
and to heal my wounds.
However, I must not fear seeking for help
I must not fear accepting the love I deserve.
My avoidance and redirection will always bring me back to the root
Because nothing lasts, but how often do things really end?
I grow, I grow, and I grow
to transform into my truest self
The me who sees me in me.
I shine brighter.
I speak louder.
Loving every inch of my body
because I honor my boundaries
and set fire to the rules and restrictions.
I am not here to conform
I am more than what we were taught,
What was shoved down our throats as the truth
My truth comes from my ancient portal that has
been passed down by my mighty matriarch.
