The light inside of me that burns brighter than the fire inside of me; the blindfold that is innocence and the twinkle that is wonder,
Thank you for giving me these gifts. Thank you for letting me see trees not as trees, but as dancing stands of leaves. Thank you for letting me see oceans not as oceans, but a blanket of healing energy for the earth. Thank you for letting me see the clouds in the sky not as clouds in the sky, but as the cool breath of angels.
Please forgive me for not seeing my body as a home for more cells than stars in the sky, but as a body I can't love. Please forgive me for not seeing my mind as a flower that is filled with nutrients and grows when cared for, but as a brain. Please forgive me for not seeing my heart as a pumping vessel of blood that keeps me energized and keeps me vitalized and keeps me alive, but as an organ. Please forgive me for not seeing my soul as a light that has lived more lives than we have records of and traveled through many experiences and many journeys, but as a question with no answer.
May I forgive those who hurt me when I was a child and prevented you from growing with me. I do realize it is within my power to take control of my vision and my thought. I'm sorry for leaving you astray, as a constant yearning and aching within me that medication and venting could never fix.
I will nurture you. I will experience your joy. I will align with your eyes of wonder. I will believe in you the way you believe in me.
To healing each other.
