Friday Photo: Independence Day

 

It took 46 years to sense it…
first just a tickle
then a burst out here and there
like a drowning woman rising to the top
churning and bubbling to the surface

It took 46 years to feel it…
saying goodbye to identities no longer useful
relationships not meeting needs
or stereotypes obliged to slide to the side
and slither into obscurity

It took 46 years to create it…
birthing them from me and
me from myself
welcoming a new phase of existence
all the time surrendering expired habits

It took 46 years to explode it…
pulsing out my heart through my fingertips
rushing out my mouth to the world
exuding out my very being into the
freedom to be
me.

Independence.

    This is wonderful Jennifer. I didn’t know what to say – the feeling I got from it. But I figured I should at least let you know I’ve read it 5 times since it came into my e-mail not a full hour ago. I absolutely love it and feel it.
