to all the ones i've loved
who were unable to face the dark truths written on my skin,
i love u still & thank u for taking your knees off my heart so
that i could breathe again.
it is my fervent wish that my passing through your story
softens your fears, gives you comfort, perspective and courage
making it impossible for you to write off the complicated places
within you that need a second look and not only healing,
but radical change from things that no longer serve you
other than places to hide in the small, fearful parts of yourself...
i thank u for allowing me a breath of clarity, lightness and determination
in my journey; to stay true to the difficult path of looking at my
darkness straight on, removing what suffocates and illuminating
what no longer serves. trusting the vulnerability within that the
world is determined to jerk from my hands....
softness, deep kindness devoid of superficial niceness, love,
determination, integrity and purpose are my north stars and
the places where i continue to grow and learn the difficult
lessons of my path...
i am not difficult, complicated or too much trouble...
i am actually a growing human dedicated to becoming the
best version of myself that humanity needs and not the
version of myself solely concerned with my personal needs
but rather leaving this place better than i found it...
i am in my purpose and if that is difficult for others,
it's only because you may not be in your larger purpose
but rather remaining in the small tribal confines of the
10 people in your sphere...
humanity is a lot bigger than that and if we are to survive,
we will need a larger view of what it means to love and
care for one another as opposed to controlling and feeding
off of each other...
i fuck up often and don't get it right...
but what i am doing is learning from the falls
and doing better the next time around...
keenly aware of the karmic/spiritual footprint i leave
in my passing and trying to reduce the degree
of destruction i leave in my wake to replace that
with a focus on always adding value, clarity and
