and my scars will have grown into
(circles of Dignity, pyramids of Will, vortices of Love)
I hide what I had to let go of in furrows
behind a tall gate
and I whisper wishes
into each victory seed
I plant --
every one this prayer:
Breathe life into
my every kind of desire.

I burned about 20 years of journals. Pages and pages of gut-red poetry and angst; cosmic gorgeousness and tender prayers; lists of wants, boyfriends (a loose term), and favourite perfumes. With every page I fed into the fireplace, I smiled. Thank you. Goodbye. Hellohhh here & now...
It will not break your spirit, it will break down your addictions. Slower is not robbing you of having your deep desires being fulfilled, it’s helping you to be there—really be there—so you can see them right in front of you.
Popularity isn’t always true power. Money isn’t always success. Experience does not guarantee wisdom. Question it all. And do not doubt the wisdom of your rage.
