Journey to Your Deepest Self

Welcome

img_80831

I was thinner than I am now

A sheet of transparent film spread over the world

Anchored by rocks on the corners

Like a picnic table

Tablecloth on a windy day.

I come from love and vengeance,

Rebellion and desire.

I come from the deep country

Where everything comes from.

I am a woman and a girl a

Motherwifefriend

Strangerkillerwriterinvisibleghost and

cardboard cut-out.

I am nothing I am all.

I am one thing at a time and, when I notice,

I am love for these 0ne-at-a-time things.

I am my mother’s daughter,

The bane of her existence and her pride.

I am the one my father fears most.

Who I am and

Where I come from

Is being written and re-written every moment.

What is the point of trying to know?

I don’t want to be known to you.

I want always to be a new discovery.

And

I want you to feel the joy of learning me

But never of knowing me.

I am mystery, excitement, terror and love

Pitiful ugliness and blinding beauty,

Courage and trembling.

Welcome to me.
