Be Yourself

Be Yourself, everyone else is taken” 
 
~ Charles Schulz
and who exactly is that?
Who slumbers so soundly
within the depths
beneath the meniscus 
of your narrative?
 
Believe the questions,
question your answers,
peel back those layers,
go for the heart.
 
Distill your narrative 
to energy.
 
 
 
 
Get beyond the thoughts,
the stories…
there are so many,
 
You can’t control something
you’re not aware of,
You can’t solve a problem
you don’t understand,
You can’t comprehend clarity
when you don’t recognize
confusion.
 
 
 
 
Arrive at feeling,
at that connection,
where heart
intersects
with mind.
You were gifted with 
this energy,
own it,
control it,
direct it,
who are you now?
who can you be?
who do You want to be?

become it,
be yourself.
