Magic occurs when you stop judging yourself,
When you allow your flaws to be seen
Vulnerability to exist.
Shame will hinder Everything.
Paralyze you to your core,
Cut the grass under your feet:
Don’t let it have the last word.
I was born Free-Spirited
But that spirit was stolen by boundaries and conventions.
I was born unchained
But was taught that I should wear shackles so I could fit in.
Today I woke up crying
but my tears were cathartic:
I have been lying to the world,
I have been lying to mySelf.
But the Universe knows
And She has forgiven.
Who am I, not to grant Her wish?
& I forgave mySelf too, so to let Magic happen.
