There’s a shadow begging for the light –
A beef, a resentment, a calling to be heard.
I know you only wanted me to blossom and flourish,
but things were lost in translation.
Your message got blurred and twisted along the way.
I arrived whole-hearted and ripe with potential.
I did not ask to be folded, wrapped and tied,
spindled, or otherwise manipulated
into some new shape altogether.
I just wanted to be love and be loved.
You did the best you could.
But I bent under the weight and the pressure
of bowing to your image
of who you thought I should be
rather than to who I actually was…and am.
I tried my best to live up to your idea of who I was,
but in the end, I had to live up to who I knew I was.
I finally found myself
lurking deep down in my heart,
Today I finally stand tall… standing straight,
head held high and sure,
azure eyes blazing with Light,
and my heart…
risen from its long, deep slumber.
I see at long last
through all of it
that I chose you as my teacher
(Phew…I still feel all of this stuff. I’m going to go into sadhana now and surrender all of it. Then I’m going to #GoOutside)
