Cutting through illusion

POETRY

Taking an uncertain step out from my house

This house has been my savior

This is where my life has happened

Outside this house is the real world

A world where I can get hurt

A world where I can experience love, passion, joy

Out in the real world I feel as if I have no skin

I have seen through my own illusion

As I step outside and close the door it crumbles behind me

It was never real

Here I am

With a clearer lens

I am standing on my own two feet

I am taking responsibility for my own life

Stepping into life

ART, ME, POETRY

I am saying yes to life
I am saying yes to myself exactly like I am
I know that I am perfectly right to be the way I am

I know that there is nothing wrong with any part of me
I know now that my experiences have shaped me

I know that I am free to love all of me
To care for the parts that still feel hurt and confused

I no longer want to reject certain parts of me
I no longer want to hide from truth

I want to see what is there
I want to care for the children inside with tender loving care
Give them anything and everything they need

I am saying yes to life
I am saying yes to joy
I am saying yes to being loved
I am saying yes to experiences and unfoldings

I want to create
I want to see who I am

I want to take part of life
I no longer want to be a bystander watching from the outside

It is time for me to step into life
