DAY 50

19th February, 2014


Slide into my skin

give me your breath

that you’ve held back so long

you’re not my kind

cease to exist

give up your blood

and sink into my world

i’ll take your frightened heart

let your soul seep with mine

I’ll shelter your fear

and start the fire

warm you

love you

bury you

take your gift

that you offer up to me so readily

slide into my skin

let me be brave for you

let me add your life

to the legion of

the suffering

the pained

the ones who choose to hold onto darkness

and sink

into oblivion

you are not my kind.

Carol Espinoza, 19th February, 2014

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
