Shedding a Layer


I let go of the need for you to validate my wounds
I let go of the need for you to
See me
Strong
Weak
For you to see
Me
I let go of the need for you to see
Me
As a victim of your decisions
A hero despite you

I let go of the need
For me to prove anything to you

I let go
I shed this layer
I shed these layers of dust
Of pain
Of illusion
Of anger
Of frustration

I shed the tired, exhausted layer
Of self blame
Of self hatred
I shed this
I shed this
I let go

I am not that
I no longer need it

I let go

I let go of the connection to you
The story with you
The drama, the thoughts, all

I'm done
It's time to turn the page
I let go

I bathe myself with love
I bathe myself with rose petals
I bathe myself with the pure, kind light of the present moment
I bathe myself with softness
Acceptance
Liberation
I bathe myself with gratitude
I bathe myself with the beauty of love
Innocence
Presence

I love me
I love and accept myself 
As I am
As is
Now
Here
