He thins me, to which my response is a laugh. A woman, looks at me as she overhears and laughs to which I wonder if it is part mockery. No matter, for I still maintain civility. I am small, but as the man said, a thin that will not break. Perhaps I am almost rubber band-like—my body with its refusals to fray as I spread myself out larger than she thought ever possible.
I don’t take drastic measures, they must seem that way. I only take measures to reach what I hope to achieve. Last year I learned when I should cut back the ill growth of this fragrant rose bush that I am trying to cultivate. I have already learned this year when to let go of leaves that are meant to fall. For the greater good, I make choices because there is no point in holding on to thinly dangling foliage. I have also been in the process of learning how to fertilize and in learning when it is necessary to cut back excessive growth–My roots dig in deeper into this rich soil. It is all love in this horizon; it’s just that love sometimes might hurt a little in some places. I hope I have the willpower to heed the words of the wise and the courage to stand alone as I cultivate this Golden Celebration.
Like me, never another one
I have learned this the hard way
They all seek me when I’m gone
But my mind they’ll never sway.
Like me, forever coming undone,
They ask me to always stay
But I’ll keep severing this bond
Come whatever may.
For me, they always turn to stone
As I go through my day to day
Because this goddess, they’ll never own
She will always keep these feelings at bay.
Sometimes you need to learn to be, in spirit form, without any need. Sometimes you have to breathe deeply into and out of your body, until all that you become is air. Then, you can float up high and you can fly without worries over the foliage. All that is required is a manipulation of your current state to become something different, something that does not require that which does not want the acquisition of your being into its essence.
You can breathe purely without those hazy contaminants that spew black smoke. All you need are the colors and lights that this new atmosphere will give you as it refracts light energy all around you. Just breathe… There is nothing you need save for your breath. When all you require is minimal, you make all that wants you minimal and you become more self-aware.
This is your story, your piece of the tale and you can spin it however you’d like. No one will ever tell you anything otherwise and you need nothing but your mentality. All that you will need to love are the things around you, but only those you find beneficial and beautiful to your being. Nothing else is necessary; nothing else will impact you any further. Think of the beauty that you will extract from the universe, a beauty that you can mold to become you and all that surrounds you. Cherish that beauty and grasp it strongly with your hands—never let it go.
