The
Aspirant now waited,
a long while passed,
then,
LiMo
Responded:

“Confused,
bound too tight,
I made a decision,
to
see,
if I could make right.
I set a course,
destination
unknown,
uncertain of letting go.
Exploring my shadows,

once I believed of losing my mind.
Some said express,

yet others,
‘but not too much.’
Me,
only
feeling safe to look,
but never touch.
Connections,
come
and go;
me in kind.
Awareness raised,
a challenge
to Unbind.

Write and count steps travelled before.
How
many journals, pens, and pencils?
The numbers matter not;
I
create the energy for thousands more.
I commit to the journey.

In this moment,
the happiness you see,
really
is,
the Unbound me.
I Choose to no longer sit,
with
negativity.
If you need to judge,
I’ll understand;
As
Acceptance can be a challenge,
to comprehend,
and hold in
hand.

The Me-of-Then,
wanted to be you –
once.

No thanks.
I’m good with who I Am.
I realized Me,

on this journey;
my values,
standards,
needs,
and wants.
I choose no labels,
only conceptions of self,

to assist,
with the describing of Me.

 

And, on the
path, there are overviews,
where once I saw difference,

between,
between me, and you…
It all made
sense…
I Choose,
because,
I matter too.
Intents
are sent to the Universe,
Unlock,
Unlearn,
all in
good time.
I claim my connection
without waiting in line.

I know where is my path,
so discomfort is fine.

No
matter how many times.
I wander off course,
my intuition,

keeps me aligned.
Boundaries set,
my course in
place,
my energy managed to fuel my pace.
Awareness,
Discernment, Understanding,
are key.
No expectations.

Respect, Trust,
and Belief in my value
I see,
thus
my Goodness,
my Moreness,
My Independence of Being,
now
free.

I think of Invictus,
My Captain,
Walden, and more,
and I remind myself,
my
words are as important.
Perhaps not to you,
but to me,

they say,
there’s no need to wish,
to be,

any,
other way.
For;
I AM enough.
Impeccable.
Unbound.
Deliberate.
And,
also More.

The
End
