the best of me

I have found myself
right here
In places lost

In lands foreign

In times past

·

In stranger’s eyes

·

·
Looking through the left
into soul
Into frightened smiles

Into hopeful winces

Into greatful chuckles
·
Into generous frowns

·

·
Half a world away
from familiar
In spite of difference

In contrary language

In difficult navigation
·

In blessed confusion

·

·
I have learned to let
everything go
In moments I’m scared
In times I feel lost

In terrifying appearances

·
In lackluster thoughts
·

·

I’m not the same
but I’m more of myself

·

I’m not playing games
but I’m having all the fun now

·

I’m not exactly suprised
but I can’t say I expected any of this

·

·
Getting good at not expecting
Getting good at letting things become
Getting good at witnessing becoming
Getting good at witnessing “me”

·

·
I’ve found I like myself
This woman I choose to be

·

I’ve found kindness repays itself
That in giving I return free

·

I’ve found that life is the Self
The other only a mirror to see

·

·
I have learned to love
my monsters
In their ugliness
In their painful glances
In their testing tales

·

In their awakening screams

·

·
Half a world closer
to truth
In glorious difference

In multiple languages

In dynamic navigation

·

In the bliss of confusion

·

·
Looking past the right
into real
The imperfect dreams
The worn out seams

The colorful nightmares

·
The dull realities

·

·
I have found my purpose
is everywhere
In investigation

In discovery

In conversation

·

In sharing the best of me
