Poem: Beautiful Soul – 29/04/21

Sustaining the high energy 
of the beautiful vitality within thy soul, 
watch as it trickles through the gaps visible 
in the aura that surrounds you whole. 

You are wonderful just the way you are, 
the courteous, gentle being who sings slightly off-key,
it is permissible to be less than perfect, 
because this is what I have to say freely:

Imperfection is beauty, as a wise woman once had said, 
your perfection lies in the moments when your heart is beating –
that’s always… 

You easily keep promises to yourself, 
honouring what you call for, 
what you beg for with a smile,
more, and more, and more… 

The grimaces are gone, 
they are done for, done for, 
that’s what I have to say, 
and treasured is everything, partially, 
of what I know,
expressions of true friendship, always.

It seems that specific people will always be there
for me, 
it appears that they aren’t the ones 
who we expected them to be, 
but I treasure the new alliances made, 
I am safe to be safe, as are you.
It is safe for us to live in these bodies, 
it is acceptable and right to express ourselves,
we should appreciate our splendid uniqueness, 
and when the flight of our souls occurs, 
we shall grasp our lives again whole.
