Not Sorry

“I’m just too intense,” she says As though she’s identified the source of the problem She apologizes for her existence so obvious Consistently overcompensates for what requires nothing Over-giving regardless of whether they are deserving Constantly saying and thinking: “There’s always something I haven’t learned it yet, haven’t said..” Exhausting the constant roundabouts in her head That never lead her anywhere but to that persistent feeling of: “I’m sorry.”  She’s […]

So..what’s a guru?

“When you have a guru like Amma in your life, it changes everything. Your effort towards self-realization is 25%, the grace of your teacher equals an additional 25% and the grace of God is 50%.  When you find your teacher, you’re already 75% of the way there.  It’s as though your own efforts are expedited by a guru’s presence.”  I drove on, contemplating a friend’s statement on our way to […]

So this is 30

She used to plan six months out a slave to the illusion of a life well lived abiding by calendars and timelines tracking the ovulations; menstruations the birthdays and new decades supposed life changes and phases so by the time she hit 30, she’d have it all figured out Today she got in her car for no good reason driving west instead inspired by the fading sunset feeling leaner and sharper […]

Survivor Mode

I am not here to fulfill your expectations I am not here for your explicit entertainment (maybe I am…) I am not here to be sugar or spice or everything nice I do not exist for your validation I am a mirror; I am your projection All you see in me is your own reflection And maybe that’s why you’re so angry I keep too many men around anyway Wild […]
