DAY 120

after leaving from the Chrysalis

This is me today

After all the struggles and the unease that I felt,

after the pain and the sorrow,

the work and the desperate need of being loved


After all the years trying to fit somewhere,

running, escaping...


After the bitter disappointments

and the sense of not being enough


After accepting those who really care for me,

after the tears and the misunderstanding,

after learning to claim myself

and setting my boundaries


After going through darkness

and awaken to light


After starting to speak with my own voice

and finding my own place...


I feared I could get lost or ruined

but here I am, pretty alive and walking gently my path


Here I am, just me... today

- and your look good as you walk gently your path. Just being there is enough, the rest happens all on its own.
