You cover my mouth
I lower my eyes,
You talk and you laugh.
I feel like a sigh.

I swallow so hard
and walk very light,
you strut and mingle
with nothing to hide.

My best friend is me,
I am all that I have.
To know myself better,
is my master plan.

I take a deep breath
then slowly exhale,
my strength emerges,
take life for a sail.

My head held up high,
smile placed on my face,
I conquer it all,
with feet still in place.

The last deed to do
wave goodbye to you,
releasing your views
lets my dreams come true.

  7. Wonderfully beautiful. Resonant with my recovery journey of dying to self daily while still learning who I really am. Feeling deep spiritual tones ringing truths in this one. I am my own best friend, and all I have really is me, but I am also often my own worst enemy. So, I must let go of me, bestie to me that I be…
