"Yours, Yourself - Trust" 2009
This piece is about letting go and beginning the process of loving yourself,
trusting yourself...With that all is possible.
Love after Love by Derek Walcott
The time will come
when, with elation
you greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror,
and each will smile at the other's welcome
and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was yourself.
Give wine, Give bread, Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you
all your life, who you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,
the photographs, the desperate notes.
Peel your own image from the mirror
Sit, Feast on your own life.
Today is this moment Feast on your unique and outrageously beautiful life.
