I’ve forgotten the power of soft.
The power of malleable material
The power of the heart,a heart not set in stone. See the sermon from the world is calling for the strong, the unmoved, unbothered and so I have walked out of my skin, left it behind and walked naked to the battlefield. Lies I have told myself over and over, this is it , this is you,well done I’ve said ,’you’re doing great sweetie’.
And I am, I am winning at being as cold as the Antarctic, hard as a rock, unbothered as a corps. So I ask myself this, I ask you this am I a machete, gun or latest ammunition,who and what am I.
And so at the frontline of this battle I sit defeated, I sit on the ground for all to see. I am not a shamed, ego climbs off my back, youth returns, I breath. For the first time in years tears, that’s right tears ,it’s tears I remember because for a while now I have ignored this well of water.
As water flows down my Sahara like drab of a body, skin, skin unfolds, it’s spring and growth has begun in me. Slowly I search and growth, growth so glorious. Soon my dry bones are a nourished body, melanin flowing like sweet honey. Heart filled with Love, a sprinkle of regrets & failure and a Power so strong unlike the strength I’ve been told to believe in.
Now that I am rooted here at this battle,grounded,growth unstoppable I will tower over all, I will fight like I can conquer. Now that I remember my heart , my soft heart led me here I do not will to undress myself of this glory, of this softness,of my true self.
“You do not have to be a fire for every mountain blocking you
You could be water and soft river your way to freedom”~Nayyirah Waheed
“Flower work is not easy, remaining soft in fire takes time”~ Nayyirah Waheed
For today I’m wishing you life , true living within your skin flaws and accessibility for life and growth stop with a closed heart and hands. Do not be afraid,of the change and challenges they only come to irrigate your growth. Last but not least Loves, fear is often the end of life and Love only the beginning!
May you stay in bloom, from a soft heart to yours🌱🌱🌱
