There is a transitory phase
that must be lived –
not skipped, not muted, not ignored –
In order to truly grow.
To shed layers and perceptions and old ways
Old ways of thinking, being, seeing…
Most of that phase,
Will be both conscious and unconscious,
as you ebb and flow between states of knowing
being afraid of knowing,
and then finally,
Who you’ve been all along.
Listen to your yes.
It will see you through.
