What does rest look like now?
What does holding on look like?
What does anything look like
When you can’t recognize yourself.
I am drowning
But no-one can help me because
I am the only one who can see the water
I cannot reach out to you from down here.
Reach in. Reach in. Reach me.
Everyday waking up to tend to the home of my spirit.
Bathe this body.
Feed this body.
Dress this body.
Carry this body.
Hold this body.
Remember to let breath in this body.
Remember to open your chest and release this body.
Remember that this body is woman.
Protect this body.
Walk this body through the days.
I am tired of this body.
I want to let this body of water go now.
I want it to return back to the ocean.
God why did you give me ocean currents
But river softness.
This body is tired.
This body is floating in itself.
This body is a boat.
Send someone to row.
The water is tired.
The carrier is tired.
