A Perfect Mess

Photo found here

Could it be true

could you come here
as you are
uncertain, unclear, unpolished
carrying the weight 
of a thousand suns

could it be true
that it's enough to show up
this way
the way you are now, empty 
of answers, not knowing
not ever knowing
what's next

could it be true
that you’ve always been worthy
and right
just as you are

that you don't have to fix or dim
add
or subtract

could it be okay
that you still forget
to breathe
that you feel ripped open 
with want

that sometimes you hurt
more than you heal

could it be okay
that sometimes you listen
to the parts that insist
there's something
more important
than love

beautifully flawed
magically messy, radiating 
the light of a thousand suns

could it be okay to let 
softness embrace
every little morsel of 
you

  3. I loved this so much I had to text you immediately! I believe you are like a modern day Rumi. Your words cut through everything and land straight in my heart. I am so grateful for you, Julia. xoxo

    The line that really strikes me is-beautifully flawed, magically messy, radiating
    the light of a thousand suns

  5. Oh my, this swept me away. Could it be true? Yes. Yes. Yes. I was just wondering why seems that life likes to gang up on me on Mondays? I know I do it to myself, but it doesn't seem that way. I feel like a victim.
    This poem spoke to those voices. The yeas and nays, the fears and fights....

    could it be true
    that it's enough to show up
    this way
    the way you are now, empty
    of answers, not knowing
    not ever knowing
    what's next

    Thank you beautiful sister.
    I love you!!!

    1. Oh gosh, Leah--I love you too. Yes, IT IS TRUE! We CAN show up just the way we are, right now--in this very moment--JUST THE WAY WE ARE. What a miracle that seems to be.

      I feel so much braver showing up knowing you are right here beside me.

      You seriously rock.
