Ambition never was my song

“True belonging doesn’t require you to change who you are; it requires you to be who you are.”
― Brené BrownBraving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone

little plumb girl

when i was a child i didn’t belong,
ambition never
was my song.
i tried to change to be like you
my true nature
was being subdued!

my clan was built with academic rules,
i was a dreamer,
i hated school!

i’m a free spirit,
with dreams that fly,
i look to the cosmos,
and breathe the skies!

nature is my soul friend,
its sanctity
i comprehend!
 

it felt like love was kept away,
my life of folly,
my disgrace!
i ran from those who couldn’t understand,
that all i needed was a caravan.
possessions never
were my thing
i’d live in forests
and grow fairy wings.

i’d pick wild flowers
in verdant fields,
and love the joy that a harvest yields!

 
i’ve always longed for connection with you,
to be myself,
to play the fool!
the words i could not put together,
i somehow knew that you were better!

i lived in a bunker of stifled dreams,
on lonely nights ,
in silent screams.
but the heart of where i truly belong,
is not religion,
its way beyond….

rooted in compassion and
the truest love,
a spiritual practice
that consists of…
a true belonging
deep in my bones,
though loneliness is what I owned!

authenticity should have been the rules,
not what i ever achieved in
school!

  1. Bravo and well said. It took me a long time to fully embrace who and what I am without regard for what others think and I only wish I’d come to that sooner that I did. You are A-ok in my book and God’s book!!!! Love and hugs, N 🙂 ❤ xoxoxoxoxo

    1. Thank you, Natalie. It took me a long time to get it. I appreciate your kind comments.
      I think I just needed acceptance more than anything.
      Brene Brown has really helped me understand belonging. Love and hugs! xoxoxox
