Poem: Mediating My Life – 20/09/20

Rosemary oil swiped either side of the doorway,
and below the walkway, where I will enter into my abode.
Rosemary oil, so glorious is the scent,
wiped below the lip of my desk,
to harness, relax, caress.

I am embracing the softer side of life,
heeding surfacing dreams,
taking care of my body,
operating holistically.

After being so hard in my thoughts,
so obstinate in being unchangeable and closed-minded
to things I was unfamiliar with,
I am finally open to the healing permitted in this world,
different types of blessings.

It may seem like a small step to others,
nothing really worth mentioning,
but for me,
it’s like addressing an inner power that allows me
to finally embrace what I’ve been missing.

And the amazing thing is,
I can already feel the differences,
the self-improvements,
the happier state of mind,
the positivity beginning to trickle then flow.

No hardened soul to be envisaged anymore,
there is no need to fight to struggle against
my negative capabilities,
I will relish the healing,
I will cherish the process,
and I will fall in love with the self-knowledge I am gleaning,
the knowing.
