Poem: Placed Just Right – 03/11/21

please place it into place
for I am found
discrepancies no longer need to abound
my world is prismatic
how about yours?
this is the way I prefer it
darkness is too untoward

lightness and fluidity
I have routine daily
which sets me in steed for healing gently
I am encouraging my world
I am watching myself bloom
I wish to welcome many others
those who wish to blossom joyfully in this room

abide by no rules
live freely
strength, resilience, be bold
to have come from such instability
when my mind was fraying at the seams
when the pieces were already shattering
broken already, then further
my thoughts chattering.

delusions so grand
I encapsulated so many lands
being fiercely unwell, so many years
taken away from me,
but now I’m becoming right, right, right,
there is nothing left to fear
my heart, it feels full
because I’m living in a way
I hold dear

I’ve learned these mechanisms which
keep me in tow
set my mind at ease
abilities to cope, slowly grow
stressors become lesser
and my temperament is free
to be myself
be less counterproductive
more me,
improvements to see.
