Living Our Truth

Updated: Jan 3, 2019

She grappled with things like

How do I be true to myself

In a world that asks me to fit molds

That I know I’m not meant to fit

How to do I share my truth

When I live in fear of how it will be received


She'd Stop

And clutch

Her chest

Feeling it pull tighter

When she'd say yes”

To things she really

Wanted to say “no” to

Her body listened

To what her soul

Was trying to say

It would speak to her

These things

Are not

Are no longer


For you

She knew

She would not

Be at peace


She resolved

The things

That made her





There’d be no winner

In fact

She didn’t want

To win

She simply wanted to

Let go

Of things

That her soul

Had said “no” to

Even though

They looked good

On the outside

And instead choose the things that it said

“Yes” to


She wanted

To feel good

On the inside

In a way that would allow her to feel free
