The space between the worlds where I can find myself without looking in the water reflection and getting a glimpse of what I once was and what I long to be.
There are no thoughts just the silence of my own soul.My armour is abandoned at the door I am free of darkness. I shred layer after layer until I walk naked and the ground shivers beneath my feet, the sun kisses all my imperfections and the wind calls my name. I will no longer hide behind the vail of lies. I raise my arms to the sky and I know I am where I belong. If this place would actually exist and have a name I could probably call it 'home'
Here, I allow myself to be. I can be simple, can be nobody and nobody's. I am nobody's child, nobody's lover, nobody's mother.
No longer the exhausted body that strives to look beautiful and thin to please those who can only see.
No longer the smile that shows up every time insecurities surface to impress those who judge.
No longer the laughter that hides a cry to trick those who can only hear.
No more promises for a better life that I cannot keep.
No longer waiting for the knight in shining armour to save me, tame me or understand me.
Today, is all I have and all I have is enough.
Today, I AM !
