Sometimes…

Sometimes

She is grounded, floor under her feet.

Sometimes

She is scattered, messy, incomplete.

Sometimes

She is joyful, deeply in her heart.

Sometimes

She is restless, seeking a fresh start.

Sometimes

She is sweet, present, listening.

Sometimes

She is cold, preoccupied, distancing.

Sometimes

She is accomplished, proud of everything.

Sometimes

She is bottomless, working endlessly.

Sometimes

She is majestic, marveling at her truth.

Sometimes

She is lost, yearning for old age or her youth.

She decided...

She decided...

She decided to write it down.

She decided it was worth looking at.

She decided that everything she felt made sense.

She decided to forgo the limiting opinions of others.

She decided to forgo the limiting opinions of herself.

She decided to shed all that was rigid.

She decided to be free.

She decided to stop cleaning the effing house.

She decided to look for fun.

She decided she could let her hair down whenever she wanted to.

She decided to stop “rising above” insufficient love.

She decided that she deserved what she desired.

She decided to place her hand on her heart.

She decided that this was the most important thing she would ever do.
