noting that during times of duress,
the most “me” me steps forward, not
the “person” me, the instinctual me.
The me that’s balanced and clear.
The one who cannot be mistaken.
i’ve kept her away, because
when i am most “me” the people disappear…
it gets silent and lonely.
Or is that inner peace, disguised as an island?
Today i have a new vision for that
space that’s created, when I speak my truth –
Today i don’t worry about being heard,
or being overheard, and misunderstood.
Today i listen so closely to that voice
in my heart, and I move with its movements,
and I sway with its sways,
and I dance with its steps…
if anything is not on its agenda,
you won’t hear from me.
the drummer inside, holds the keys to my passage
it is that drummer inside who is my guide.
