Do I look okay?
Too big, too small, too bald, too…
Love You as you are.
You won’t be liked and that’s okay;
Embrace your true Self anyway.
One can’t account for ev’ry voice
Before they fin’lly make a choice.
Speak what words are on your heart,
Or hold your tongue (a sacred art).
Opt in and out just as you please;
Let no one make you ill at ease.
The world outside will always spin
It’s lies, but do not let them in.
Dress and speak and live your Light,
And guard your Peace with all your might.
Change the way you talk
The way you think, understand,
And see your true Self.
Don’t be afraid to just be you,
And to your intuition true.
You needn’t play by other rules
Designed to please exclusive fools.
You needn’t choose a camp or side,
When in the Way you do abide.
Learn from everyone you meet,
And take your pond’rings to the street.
Enact your values with great care,
Be kind and generous and fair.
If in love you make your way,
There’s nothing anyone can say.
Embrace your weird, your zen, your bliss
For there is peace and joy in this.
Don’t let those others say you’re wrong.
Accept yourself, and you’ll belong.
Today I’ll see
The best in me.
For I am free
To live and “be,”
Lost in the sea
And endless productivity.
Lying on the floor
Wishing I was more.
A new version of me
That I cannot even see.
But I guess that’s how
Things tend to happen now.
Reaching out and hoping for
A shade, a ghost and nothing more.
Time to realize
The doubts are bloody lies
Who I am is more than fine
My life has value ’cause it’s mine.
If for your past they’re judging you,
Know they’ve no clue what’s really true.
They weren’t there to see your toil
As you cultivated inner soil.
They didn’t see you plant the seeds
Of healing thoughts and words and deeds.
They didn’t share in your shed tears
When looking back at wasted years.
They’ve no idea how much you’ve grown.
Let that be what you know and own.
If they can’t love what you’ve become,
Don’t let those fools be bothersome.
