becoming

for years i longed
for the peace and solitude
that meditation and yoga
and loving completely evokes

but I didn’t meditate
because i wasn’t ready
to hear what truths
would become apparent
in the silence

and I didn’t practice yoga
because i didn’t yet believe
i was capable
of embodying
that kind of strength

and i refrained
from loving with all my heart
because that is only possible
when you know the truth
and are strong enough
to embrace it
