Shame

I burned my to-do list and napped on the ashes

Too often I felt like a fallen leaf buffeted by the hot air of every voice but my own

I wore more costumes than my closet could hold

Reunited with my true self, I mourned lost time

I grew thirsty to wash the flavor of feet from my mouth

Deafened by words I cannot unsay

Paralyzed by actions I cannot undo

I anchor myself by setting intentions

I unblind myself by seeing the light in my heart

I catch glimpses of your inner light while dancing

We are one even as we appear apart

We are close even though we seem far
