When I’m gone

If ever you wake up and find that I am gone,

I beg you not to ask that I come back. 

And when you miss me so much that your heart starts to ache,

you can find me in the rivers and I will teach you about change. 

When you’re lost and needing direction, 

follow me in the wind and I will guide you through the darkness. Help you learn how to let go. 

When you feel trapped and it seems that there is no way out, 

see me in the birds. I will show you the only way to be free. To trust the beauty that is in your wings. 

When you look around and see nothing but death,

I ask you to seek me in the trees. I will teach you to about life and how to appreciate your every breath.

If ever you wake up and find that I am gone,

know that I only went home.

Self Love

I trembled as I begged.

Forgive me.

For not knowing better.
For talking to you like you are nothing.
For the spite. The guilt.

Forgive me for not giving you what you deserve.
Forgive me for hurting you.
For making you feel small and unwanted.
For the pain. The constant doubt.

Forgive me for the put downs.
For the times I told you that you weren’t good enough.
For the worry. The lies.

I stood there
sobbing.
Desperate.
Alone.

And as my reflection stared back at me
I begged one last time

Forgive me.
