beneath

beneath

the thoughts and feelings

you have worn

on your shoulders

for so long,

there is the real you

who is worthy of the freedom

from what darkness said

you would be.

you are more than what you feel

you are more than what you think,

yes, this things matter,

but they do not mean everything.

there is still

open space

deep within

the present moment

to let these old things go

and just be

for sometime,

knowing that you are so much more

than what is heavy on your mind.
