how to feel unburdened
© 2013 by margaux delotte-bennett

sit with yourself
and your thoughts
preferably in a comfortable chair

breathe in clarity
breathe out confusion

remember that all you really own
have control over
can change
is outside and inside
your body
and even then
not so much

remember that there is only so much
that you can do
to change her fears
pull him closer
alter her beliefs
remind him of his power
allow them to see you
in your fullness
raggedy edges and all

make a vow to yourself
and your community
to be willing to release the toxins
while you embrace all that feeds
your muse and your soul

sit and write down these words
that are for you
but not only

remember to repeat
and often
