I can remember my love of writing, particularly poetry, growing up. Poetry was how I processed the overwhelming highs and lows we experience as we navigate adolescence. It saved me through so many dark hours and it was my journal who was my comforting friend that was always there for me.
To this day I journal almost every day, however I closed the door to my creative writing abilties long ago as I entered the "real world".
This year has been all about rediscovering my true self. Honoring her, allowing her to break free, giving her room to dance, to laugh, and to be seen. I started writing poetry again, and today I'm being brave and sharing it with all of you....
The Inbetween, the unforseen.
The clock is ticking.
Sitting, waiting, embracing, holding onto the past, present, and future all at once.
This journey never ends.
It's an evolution.
It's a progression, time for reflection, for growth.
Stability is what most of us seek.
The answer isn't in the job, the partner, or the house.
These are the illusions we create in the constructs of our minds.
The ever present pull towards what "reality" is.
What is real for me, may not be real for you.
We can only see to the depths that we hollow out ourselves.
Leaving a void to be filled by the power and energy of true transformation, healing, and growth.
Shattering the illusions of this 3D world.
Releasing the expectations from our peers, from society.
Go into the space in your heart.
The place that you know is home.
The place where your true self is sitting and waiting for you to break her free.
Let her dance.
Let here laugh.
Let her run loose.
Let here play.
Let her be joyous.
Let her love.
Releasing all worry, anxiety, and doubt.
Releasing fear of others and their expectations.
But most of all, let her truly embrace The Inbetween.
