You Learn

Updated: Sep 5, 2019

You learn more on days

when you think

there can be nothing more to learn

you learn there are places

you can go with steady feet

you learn there are things

you can say without defeat

You learn where your edges

were once so defined

have blurred into oneness

with body, heart, and mind.

You learn to let the wind begin

to place a flower on your cheek,

while each breath softens the choker

so you can begin to speak.

You learn how your worthiness

cannot be granted

or be stripped away

not by who came,

not by who left,

not by who chose to stay.

You learn to love the bridges

that have carried you to grace

and you learn how you have been one

to someone,
