finding parts of myself i never knew existed

through all of it, the love in my heart persisted

it told me that whatever was shaken loose

was meant to align me with greater truth

sometimes, a small bit would fall away and leave an emptiness

eventually, i learned to deal with the dizziness

i learned to let go of the desperation that crept within my bones

that clawing, gnawing anxiety that we all have known

we fear lack of control, it scares us

but when we drop that fear, nothing can prepare us

for the sudden clearing of the lungs

we can breathe deeply again and sing the songs we once sung


some say that just trusting is foolish

believing that everything will be okay allows many of us to do this

we are broken down so many times

ripped open, torn apart just to come back to being fine

that’s why i believe that letting go of worries and fears are so crucial

the feeling of happiness and endless bliss is a desire that is mutual

for all of us at the end of the day when the sun goes down

we just want to be so sure that we won’t drown

if we want to experience the joy of smiling more

why do we shut others out and lock the door?


it’s time to press your hand firmly against the wood

gather every ounce of courage from your blood

turn the key and crack open the door

your eyes will light up when you realize that there’s so much more

a world to see, people to meet, stories to tell

a life where you’re genuinely happy and well


so close your eyes and take a deep breath

breathe in the good, exhale the regrets

it’s time to leave the heaviness behind you

and know that love will always follow beside you

you suddenly can’t explain how

but you know you’re ready now

to walk through that door.
