what if the things you feel
inside of you that make it hard for you to
be here are part of why you’re here?
what you have and what you hold inside…
you can’t feel it anywhere else here yet.
but what if the way you can’t feel it anywhere
around you is a reason for you to be here.
because what you feel, what you dream, how you love,
what you create, the way you shift the air and change
the space and pull in the light… it’s how and who you are,
and it’s your light to give here.
those things you feel in you but don’t yet see,
you’re meant to breathe them into being.
– butterflies rising
Inspired from her 2018 poem lightwork, “lightwork: the remix” a poem that butterflies rising wrote about how sensitive souls can struggle to be here in this world, but the reasons they struggle are the things inside of them that are needed in this world. She wrote it as comfort for herself and her own struggle, and hopes it brings comfort to others who struggle in this world.
