Listen to yourself


Listen to yourself

to the subtle flows

of emotion, desire

coursing through your body.

You need not conform

to any boxes,

any borders.

Desires overflow

these simple lines


to control,

to contain.

Love yourself,

what you bring to the world.

Others may say,

“You’re not good enough,

you’re not doing it right.”

They speak from

their anger

their fear.


You need not hold

these words

in your belly.

Let them go,

when you are ready.

Practice yourself,

do what moves you.

Feel your breath,

your body.

Touch yourself.

Take in the touch you need

of wind and water,

earth and sun,

food and drink,

hands and mouths.
