A child of the moon and the stars

POETRY

Softening into vulnerability
Choosing to sit open and naked
Holding my heart in my hands open for everyone to see

I no longer choose to stay strong
I no longer choose to put up a facade of what my ego tells me I need to be

I am brave, I am soft and I am vulnerable
I am choosing the path of breaking free
I do not know where it will take me
But I am willing to find out

I fully surrender into what it means to be human
Into what it means to be a woman

I am choosing to fully experience life
I want to feel it all
I want to experience all of it

I want to fall in love
I want to rise in love
I want to experience my body

There is nothing that is unavailable to me
My pain no longer defines me

I am no longer making excuses and limiting myself because of fear
I hold my hand as fear arises
I lovingly acknowledge it
Stroking my little girls face telling her all is okay and I will never leave her side
She is safe now
I am here to hold her
She doesn’t have to stay strong any longer
I am here to keep her safe

She is fully free to be innocent, trusting the world and all it entails
She is free to laugh and cry and play
Her heart is free to stay wide open
She can walk through life curious about the world

I am here to keep her safe

She is free to forever be a child
A child of the moon and the stars
She is free to love unconditionally
To be unconditionally loved
Forever held and cherished
She holds the gifts of existence
The sky in her eyes

I am here to keep her safe as she walks through the world sharing her light
