Ive grown up hearing life is a blessing and I’ve had innumerable moments I couldn’t experience life as a blessing.

I’ve grown up thinking life must be easy & happy and over time I’ve realised that only inflames suffering.

I’ve grown up believing adulthood will flip life bright and as an adult I’ve been my dimmest.

I’ve grown up awaiting to put my childhood behind me and as an adult I’m healing my inner child.
The real **** definitely stinks, but I’m embracing it. Because to cleanse myself, I gotta first embrace the real ****.

you held me close to you,
and I felt your heart beating
deep inside of your rib cage.

I closed my eyes and listened
to the rise and fall of your chest,
hearing the soft thump of
your heartbeat and imagining
that if I stayed still for long enough,
I could melt into you.

for the first time in my life,
I felt like I belonged.

you made me feel like
I belonged with you

like I belonged on this planet.

like I belonged here, right here,
secure in your arms.

I haven’t felt safe
since you let go of me.

The way you look at me,
Like I hung the moon,
It makes me cower in guilt,
For it can never be enough.

The way you embrace me,
Embrace all my flaws,
It makes me see,
How like a broken bird I've become.

The way you hold me,
Like I am precious China,
Forged from dragons breath,
It makes me aware of the fire, Dead inside.

The way you kiss me,
Like a sailors wish,
Stuck in the eye of storm.
It makes me a criminal,
Fraudulent in the pleasures I take.

The things you do for me,
No one has ever done,
It makes me a hypocrite in my gratitude.

The way you love me,
In fervent worship,
A piece of my soul chips,
Because he can never love me like you do.
Why is it that
being childish
is always discouraged
why can't people
the child inside them
why can't people
just see the magic
around them
like a child does
why can't people
love a the
little things of this world

You wish for the good hours
When the sun wasn’t so eager to run away
But they’ll come again
When the daylight breaks through dawn

And you are granted another day

Loving , praising and embracing oneself isn't hubris and selfish ,
rather , the best technique for keeping all those at bay who expect from others to stay under their feet.

See that flash of light,
white, hot rage
Hear the roaring thunder,
the rattle of a cage
Feel the wind
blow up a storm
Then know the sun,
embrace so warm
Mind and soul
Wishing you
Gives sublime bliss
I wonder
How would it be
If you
Wish back
Everything about courtesy

To the sacred breakthrough
Forever true
And once again
Here I'm
With a zen smile
Adherent joyfully
What could I ask for more?

You say you hate the human race
I say you have a lovely face
You think you’ll never reach the place
I think that you would miss the chase
So I unlace
And you embrace
And with the world we keep pace
‘Til the day we disappear
And leave without a trace
