You Are A Visionary

How many of you

Growing up were taught,

Spoken and unspoken,

That your parents’

Loved ones’ and everybody else’s

Pain and suffering

Was all your fault?

Did it squeeze your heart

Did it stab your heart

Did it crush your heart

Did it break your heart

To the level

You couldn’t breathe?

Did it shatter your soul into

Parts and pieces to the level

You felt dead inside?

Was the pain in your body and being

Bleeding so deeply in your veins

That numbing it

All the ‘I don’t know’ and

Getting out of your body was

The only way

You knew how to survive?

How many times did you

Feel that way

Throughout your life?

How many parts and pieces of you

Did you split from

That made you feel broken?

Everything that is,

Would you like to

Uncreate, delete, destroy it all

And take back

All those parts and pieces of you?

As loving and caring as you are

You loved those who

Taught you so much

That you took on all the lies

Of blaming, shaming and guilting you

Believing that was how they loved you

Locked them all up in your body

Until you felt no strength left

In order to take away

Their pain and suffering

When it actually didn’t

In order to feel connected with them

When it actually separated you

More from you and them

Everything that is,

Will you like to

Uncreate, delete, destroy it all?

Would you like to receive that

You know what it feels like

To be loving and caring to

To be connected and

In total communion with

You and others,

Bigger and greater

Vast and expansive

Liberating and free,

By being all of YOU

Without having to take on their baggage

Without having to carry them

On your shoulders

Without having to be them?

With that level of trauma and drama

You went through,

The fact that

You are still standing here

Breathing each and everyday

Looking back on

All the pain and hurts

All the grief and sorrow

That you didn’t get to express

To set you free

Collecting any and all

Parts and pieces of you

Back to and with YOU

Fighting for your life

Even when you didn’t feel it

Fighting for your future

Even when you didn’t see it

Fighting for YOU

Even when you didn’t know

What your sense of self was

Teaching you all over again

Gifting everything

That you were never given

To others from different walks of life

Lightening up their world

Empowering them to be

Everything God created them to be,

It is nothing less than a miracle

YOU have made it all happen

Because YOU are that miracle

Would you like to acknowledge

Your God’s absolute truth about

That level of power and potency

That greatness of a powerful leader

Beyond words

That you are born to be?

Your light is so bright and undeniable

That all the turmoil,

Insanity and cruelty

Of the world you lived in
