A Love Letter

Fantastic – out of this world

My Dear Love,
Looking back, it seems like we were little children trying to play house. But I am glad I stuck with you even though there were times when I wanted to run away from it all. I am grateful that you stayed with me for this incredible voyage we embarked upon, many years ago.

Although I describe this as a journey, it hardly comes close to describing a relationship so intimate, so constantly existent that sometimes it felt as though I would just disappear into this gaping maw.

When substantive conversations dissolve pretense and insecurity,
That neither has the need to coddle the other emotionally,
Where one is at ease with the other as with oneself –

And shared silence becomes comfortable.

I Am Me

I am born –
Into a certain genetic combination;
Into a certain social, cultural economic fabric –
That is not me.

I am trained, I am conditioned –
That is not me.

I am me,
Because –
I dream, I hope, I think,
I journey through life discovering myself,
Once found, I aspire perfection.

Then when I peer into myself;

I see the world just the way it is
And all the beauty it contains,

I am free from all the ties that bind
I bind myself to the world around me,
I revel in these ties that bind.

I see the barriers in my head dissolve
I see humanity and marvel at it,
I revel in being human.
