It was difficult to hold

many things.

It was difficult to comprehend

that the world wasn’t

how it appeared on the surface.

I had known that at an early age

and had continued on.

It was disheartening to know

and be unable to be heard —

as so many times before.

Yet I remained thankful for strength

to hold it all anyway —

and to remain connected

to God and to my heart

this time

and to welcome new friends

and new experiences

as I learned to notice

and nurture the smallest

bit of hope and pure joy

hold a space

for this natural

unfolding in myself

and others

and to trust each of

our higher selves

to arrange the pieces.

Sometimes it was

hard to hear

the quiet prayer

in my heart

Sometimes life became

so noisy

and the best I could do

was to hold on

in fact always there —

no matter what.

Somehow that was


Most Natural

Holding December 4, 2016

Out of necessity,

I became willing

to remember how

to see with

my heart —

to dare myself

to hold my focus

just below the surface —

to toss everything

and trust

what was needed

to come back down —

to meet my Self

in each moment —

to notice again and again

that I was indeed

still okay here —

until this was

the most

natural place

to be.
