You

Forget everyone else for a second

remember your heartbeat inside your chest

license to breathe & be pumping rhythm through your veins

remember love

for self

forgiveness wrapped in cherry blossoms sprinkled over you for never being that person you dreamed of becoming

forgiveness for trying to convince yourself that you are, should be, anything other than flesh and bone, dancing to the beat of your drum

then let yourself dance.

As

there is a thing you were never supposed to be

because you are

there is a person waiting for you to accept

fingers & toes notwithstanding

there is a you

patient

being

present not in glitters & gold

but mud & stardust

the stuff of clay molding,

sculpture existing –

you.
