Be still- Prompt 18

Sit with yourself
in quiet stillness
sprinkle negative thoughts with glitter

embrace the fullness
of humbleness and charm

I never cared to be the prettiest
just to be
a simple different
with a calm settling beauty

some version of inspiration
to the least noticeable
ones

I carried myself as solitude
slow to react
nearly delayed

untangling myself
from mirrored disappointments

hydrating my hollow
with poems and creativity

I dug out

Collaging the pieces of what
was rinsed away in tears
cleansing my transition from darkness
to light

Lifting images from the roots
of who I was born to be

There is more to me in here

Isolation and layered trauma
creates the the best mixed media
portraits
of the person that was always
right here

Me
