Begin Again

Begin Again

A Poem by T
"

See video below: Ah the lessons we lean, if we choose to learn them...or else then what is the definition of choosing the same paths over and over again?

"
But on a Wednesday, in a cafe, I watched it begin again........

 

I’M SURE IT WASN’T YOUR INTENTION

I KNOW YOU DIDN’T MEAN TO TEACH ME A LESSON’

BUT YOU DID

 

YOU SEE, IN THE MOMENTS THAT YOU WERE HARD

I CRAVED SOFTNESS

IN THE TIMES YOU TOLD ME I WASN’T ENOUGH

I REALIZED THAT I NEEDED TO BE

 

WHEN YOU TOLD ME NOT TO LOOK TOO DEEPLY IN

I KNEW THAT I WANTED SOMETHING DEEPER

AND WHEN YOU FINALLY TOLD ME THAT YOU WERE MOVING ON

I REJOICED IN THE LESSONS TAUGHT

AND I TURNED AROUND AND FOUND THEM....... CHANGING ME

 

I FOUND THEM IN A PLACE I HADN'T LOOKED BEFORE

IN THE KIND OF MAN WHO WAS KIND AND SWEET AND NOT HARDENED BY TIME

THE KIND OF MAN I TYPICALLY PUSHED ASIDE

BECAUSE HE SAW ME ....AND I WAS AFRAID

 

THE KIND OF MAN WHO WAS THERE ALL ALONG BUT I COULDN’T SEE

UNTIL YOU TAUGHT ME TO

THE KIND OF MAN WHO MADE IT SO EASY, NO DRAMA, NO PAIN…

NO WAITING, NO TIME LOST

JUST EASY, SWEET, MOMENTS


THE KIND OF MOMENTS WHERE A DEEP SIGH RELEASES

AND YOU RELAX INTO ARMS OF STRENGTH AND COMFORT

 

 

THANK YOU FOR NOT LOVING ME

THANK YOU FOR THE LESSONS

AND THE GIFT OF OPENING MY EYES

BECAUSE NOW I SEE WHAT I WAS MISSING

ALL ALONG

It's a wonderful journey this becoming, It's part letting go of who I was, while releasing the beliefs that sabotage what I want to be, and-knowiing that in order to transform, I can't live in b.. more..
