it's okay ...

It’s okay to break

It’s okay to shatter and splatter

Your feelings

Your guts

Your rage 

Your tears.

In fact

Doing this will save you. 

It’s not a guru

Or this book or that 

That will save you.

It’s you

And your terror 

And your pushed down 

Overstuffed orifices

Full of memories you pretend you don’t have.

That’s your savior.

Hand in hand with your pleasure 

And your soft cooing tenderness

And the tips of the pinkest petals that reign untouchable within.

All of it combined

Is the god that will walk you home

Through the front door

Into your own actual self.
