its a new year
I know you feel the pull
the need to change
the burden to grow
the longing to become
who you are meant to be
there is no pressure here
no container holding you in
don’t start this year enslaved to “shoulds”
before you reach
let go of what contains you
let go of the stories that pull you down
that promise you safety
but deliver oppression
let yourself be
let yourself want
let yourself pursue
it will lead to conflict
let that be your marker
the road to life is marked by resistance
feel the current
life is upstream
as you swim
let your burdens float
leave them to the river
let it carry them
you swim
one stoke at a time
