Starting Now!

 

Love yourself 
Breathe in the fresh air 
You are beautiful!
Follow your instincts
Put your hair however you want 
Stare at the sky
You are breathtaking!
Do not trust a lie
Shoulders back
You are amazing!
Be brave 
Be daring 
Grab your sisters hand 
You are not alone!
Smile 
Do not be down 
You are an authentic genius!
Only one blueprint
Change your shape
Move free
Do not accept anything less
Than the feel fabulous type of love 
Declare your victory
Do not fear 
Fly and conquer
Love yourself 
Be proud 
…Of you!

Revolutionary 



Seven steps toward the sun 

Seven inches will reach the end  
Seven seconds..
Is when I let go and run 
Too foreign is the face of the reflection 
The haunt of 
“Is this what I really want”
Screaming like an old song
Or a familiar scent
I want to be like a reed in the water
Broken from robotic commitment 
The yes and no’s of behavior 
The falsetto of mediocre 
Shatter me into the wild 
Carve me out and into a sculpture 
I will break it apart
And sprint even further 
From the table you’ve set for my future
Don’t you see?
I will never live there
Today is already the sleeping tomorrow 
And I am young in the water
What you have predestined 
Is not for me
Don’t you see?
You don’t even know who I am
I am no longer your child 
I am a revolutionary woman
Without a mother 
Without a father 


Burned



And in a snap 

Trust is burned to death 
A smolder of rust
From fragile hands 
Reaching for straws  
To regrow the charred grass 
But the fire restarts 
With a flash
A burst of charcoaled truth 
When I view you 
Striking a fuse, splitting vows in two  
And here I remain 
Outside your window
Getting slammed by pain 
Chunks of heart break off
Slipping down the gutters drain 
Why I seem
To never learn this lesson
Bulldozed by lies careful construction
Trust is impossible to grasp
When you’ve tied my feet
And sawed off my hands
