Island Vibe

Island vibes

Familiar ties

times and tides

changing lives

A few years running

and I find myself

landed

again.

By the ocean

round and round

without a wheel of time

following the sun

in the winds wake.

Life is

and will forever be

that which you create.

This Man

This man

he

knows me

From the hairs on

my belly

to the curve of my breast.

 

This man

he

knows me

From the heights

of irrationality

to the depths

of desire.

 

This man

he

knows me

From before

children

drunkenness and stupor

To after

children

neediness and lack of glamour

 

This man

he

knows me

Sometimes

I think

better than

I know myself.

Love him. Yes I do.

Love him. Yes I do.

Big League

Joining the big league

Bigging up myself

With belief

Mixing in confidence and intention

Large amounts of intention

Setting it all off with discipline and action

(Remember it speaks louder than words)

Not so much faking it

As making it

Happen

Allowing the cracks to be

So that light may stream in

I am

Therefore I am

I am

Therefore I am

Let it be

Let me be me

Let me be the best version of me

I can possibly be.
