Today, Notably

Today is the day I stopped being awkward

Well, not exactly, because I'm sure I'll

Second guess myself again and certainly

Speak out of turn in my bubbling over excitement

And probably I'll trip over one of my left feet

At least once more...

But today is the first time in living memory

Where I felt

Natural.

Where my insides came out and I

Believed in the love I've cultivated

For such a long time and furthermore

In the kindness I've practiced more recently

While learning to replace the voice trying

To keep me safe from invisible and impending

Threats that upon closer inspection are no more

Than morning mists, fearsome only when

I forget to rub the night out of my eyes and live

In the day...daily, days, lackadaisically

Like today, when I just was.
