Poetry is a clear window into the heart. I often write to express the thoughts and emotions inside me--not knowing what will appear on the page but invariably discovering more about myself and the world around me.

Born this Way

Posted Thursday, March 28, 2013

I was born loving
Born forgiving
Born honest

I didn't make the world
The way it is
But I'm making it now
I don't blame you
For hurting me
You were just protecting your wounds
Trying to be in control
Just like me
Just like most everyone else

Now I'm making the world
Creating it
With you
With everyone one

I am creating peace
Actively
Heart awakening awareness
Non-judgmental noticing

Truth telling
To myself
To others

Forgiveness
To myself
To others

Love
To myself
To others

I was born loving
Born forgiving
Born honest
