I am trying, oh I am trying,
To hold both the bitter and the sweet
Familiarizing my heart to nostalgic pulls
Learning to honor my instinct to retreat.
I am accepting with an open heart,
Truths that are clear and those yet untold
Bending softly to a future still foggy ahead
Trusting more in what my heart already knows.
I am befriending my sense of intuition
Listening to the quiet song that souls sing
Trading in the harsher edges of practicality
For the softer reassurances of peace.
