I Am Mine

I am me and I am mine

A safe cocoon of transformation

Changing constantly with the moon

I grow, I shift, and then I bloom

Breaking old molds and hesitation

I am me and I am mine

I see the love I had denied

When the world grows noisy

I go still

Still to find the center

The place inside that no one sees

The place inside where there’s only me

Inside my heart, I found this space

It was lonely, tattered and neglected

That space in me held love rejected

But it was me, and it was mine

So I planted seeds of love divine

I am me and I am mine

I see the love I had denied

When the world grows noisy

I go still

I see the power of my will

I willed myself to break out of this shell

I changed my eyes to stop seeing hell

That space, though shabby was fertile soil

Watered by old tears, and endless toil

I am me, and I am mine

I see no more of love denied

When the world grows noisy,

I fly away

I drift amongst the garden and play

I see no more these shades of gray.

Inspired by the beautiful, wonderfully talented poetess Yashkan
