A Poem

How To Change Shape

Stretch out a boundary
Push out a line
Cry out a marble
Leaving more space to shine
Break an enclosure
Throw open the doors
Unlock the shackles
Dig up the floor
Explore the foundations
Dance in new space
Uncover the history
Embody new grace
Dig through the garden
Expose fresh old soil
Sweating with pleasure
Struggle and toil
Throw out the garbage
Throw out the ‘Good’
Light up a fire
With your own fire wood
The flames they will lick you
With pleasure and pain
And leave you in anguish
To start over again
They will burn down your body
Burn down your self
Leave you with nothing
But your own inner wealth
So hard they will push you
So far will you fall
To realize your journey
To break down the wall
To embody your all
A space you inhabit
Feeling safe and at home
Until you realize
It is not yours to own
But made up of pieces
Of other people’s mess
Their old ideas
Of struggle and stress
Like a magpie you built
A bed of fools gold and rocks
And now you can see
How to open the locks
To set yourself free
Lighter and open
To make your own way
Towards mountain and ocean
No path ahead of you
Your own steps behind
Forging your way
Towards what you might find
Listening to animals
Trees, wind and river
Spirit is calling
Through leaves that quiver
The signs they come through
Loud as the silence
You know what to do
As the voice becomes vibrant
To follow your heart
One step at a time
To become more yourself
To become more sublime
The shape you become
Will be bigger and brighter
An embodiment of self
But oh so much LIGHTER
The flame that’s within you
That burns deep inside
Is always there to guide you
Eternally alive
And tomorrow you will get up and do it all again
With a bit more love and space than yesterday
With love,
Hannah x
