how can we possibly ascertain or understand?
exercising the audacity to judge another wo/man
we can’t know what goes on under the skin
where the contraction ends, and expansion begins
the daily strength and fortitude that it takes
new ways of existing by our decisions we make
minutely rerouting synapses in our mind,
back against the wall, we focus, and we strive
surrendering to the in and outside pain,
embracing authenticity, we begin again.
Went on another trip today with my sister, I just love her beautiful soul and I'm not being biased ♀️... Anyway I came across this beautiful star fruit tree!!! ... How grateful I was for this sweet surprise... Mother Earth provides!
. #Day1 Mantra of #7daysofcommunication challenge is "I'm here for you" .... As I went on my walk today I repeated this mantra in my head. With every step I reminded myself "I am here for you". It brought about a very calming feeling and quieted the usual angst. Of course there's also the fact that it's a beautiful day today . Since I've been showing up for myself, I was able to show up for my sister. We sat and talked. We laughed. We listened. We discussed our dreams and greatest passions. I feel more connected to her now than ever. And for that I'm grateful.
As woman it is important to heal ourselves. For our sisters. & For the women before and after us.

Darkness came upon my soul
Making me feel so strangely cold
The heat ebbs exiting my veins
Leaving my body writhing in pain
I sit upon the cold grey stone
Willing demons to leave me alone
Shaking my head side to side
Removing their poison from my mind
Determined not to run in fear
Down my cheek slides a lonely tear
What shall I do, don’t know where to go
I run towards the trees, for shelter I know
Branches loom over, darkening the sky
Running so fast, harder I try
Don’t look back, don’t see what’s behind
The demons flight, much quicker, quicker than mine
Help! I scream and rush from the night
That enters the woods much to my fright
I sense the warmth that can save me .. so close
But alas, I tripped, fell and I lost
Footsteps come nearer, my sobs quiet down
I cringe, hold my breath, face in a frown
Closing my ears, holding them tight
My body is trembling, but to the death I will fight
I look into the black void
A swirling mass of temptation
knowing for me no hope of redemption
Threatening to take my soul
That has already began to feel so old
I look into the depths of the abyss
I stand tall, and I tell them this. "I am here and will always fight
I will stand alone, backed by the light
That’s why I need a gentle spirit watching over me
Guiding and protecting on this journey far and free. “
life can sometimes drag
skidding against our soul at times
like sandpaper on sunburned skin
will this contraction ever subside?
chose to surrender to love
stop and chose to surrender again
but I’ll never bullshit you
and say that there’s no pain
it’s uncomfortable to sit in this
disquieting at the very least
succumbing to the killer waves
of a life now lived complete
with darkness and with light
with daylight and at night
symbiotic with the contraction
manifesting the expansion
at one with the frequency of love.
