{A Letter to my Soul}

A letter to my soul
if I were giving her permission.

Dear self, won’t you
be happy?

Stop with the endless mental chatter
howling and rabid:
“You are not good enough.”
Just stop,

life is supposed to be fun and you
my darling young thing should enjoy your life
even just a bit.

Enjoy your family,
your talent,
your abundance,
your quirky take on the world,
your eloquent speech,
your strange and peculiar heart that is broken-down,
all too often crushed by everyone’s pain.

Enjoy just a little bit,
silly soul, be happy.

If someone catches you dancing, well wouldn’t that be
something to behold.

    Thank you for putting this into words and then for sharing it–it was exactly what I needed to hear this week. It’s going into my save folder so i can read it again, and again.

    1. Wow, thank you for telling me. Just today I was thinking of quitting. I know stupid, and not really, but I feel so … lacking in direction for my writing. What am I writing? What is it for? How to move it ahead? (More than personal processing into a book or something tangible.)
