Turning toward myself.
Turning toward the skin and body I am in.
Turning toward the light inside me
and all the dark hidden underneath my ribs.
Turning toward my needs.
Turning toward my wounds.
Turning toward my dreams.
Turning toward you.
Just turning toward
because I have turned away so much.
From life, from my own gaze,
from feeling something new in sight, sound and touch.
Because of the same old patterns
and the same old thinking.
The same old language
that had me like a ship sinking.
No more hiding now,
no more playing in the shadows,
Like there’s a noose around my neck
and my life is just fit for the gallows.
I want to feel the sun on my brow.
I want my back to stop breaking from all the heaviness I’ve had to carry.
There is a dance waiting for me in the meadows
where my love of being alive and my love for being myself marry.
Turning away has made me feel
this life isn’t mine.
But it is mine to create something out of my heart from.
Yes, this is my beautiful, hand-made life.
I turned away first thinking that was how
you were supposed to deal with pain.
But turning away led me to forget me,
but now I am remembering again.
I am remembering my power
rather than feeling like a vulnerable reed lost in a windstorm.
I am taking every aspect of my life back into my hands
and the story that was once told about me I am about to transform.
Because I am writing my story,
I am crafting my life.
I will re-edit over and over again
until I see around me what makes sense to my heart’s eyes.
This is the alchemy that all our grandmothers practiced
and the magic runs through all our blood.
Taking our stories out of the hands of others
and finally turning back toward ourselves and honouring our hearts.
~ C.S. Laurie
