the sweet and wild rebellion in you…

the sweet and wild rebellion in you…

the poetry
in those eyes…
those dreamer’s eyes
learning to see in the dark.
and all that
beautiful madness
tangled in your hair.
toes dangling
over the edge,
testing a new universe.
it’s ok to take small steps and
deep breaths, love…
but also, let yourself start to
take up your space.
and don’t you dare say you’re
sorry when you do.
and you’ll be rejected
for these wings, these fires,
this sweet and wild rebellion in you.
but these are such. beautiful. things.
so keep choosing you…
because nothing will matter
if you reject you.

if it needs you small,
don’t let it hold you anymore.
don’t let anything that needs you
ordinary tame you ever again.

this chaos in us is beautiful…

this chaos in us is beautiful

let yourself just
feel for a moment.
head quiet.
heart,
however… wherever… all over.
then maybe you could
see what i see…
how this chaos in us
is beautiful.
and how we don’t have
to sort it out.
if you want,
we could tell each other
everything,
but we could also say nothing,
and let this be enough.
because just this,
it’s everything.
and just you…
it’s more than enough.

a wild butterfly finding your way…

maybe you go a little wayward and get a little reckless, but be easy on your restless heart

what if the
raging inside of you
is something beautiful…
your curiosity stretching
and your soul stirring…
all that wildflower energy
in your veins.
and the ache is everything
you’ve suffocated for so long just
trying to find some way to breathe.
and when it feels like
you’re burning it all down,
you’re just still learning
how to burn bright.
maybe you go a little wayward
and get a little reckless,
but be easy on your restless heart;
have a little grace with your fire…
you’re a wild butterfly finding your way,
just a girl growing wings.
