I choose

I choose

I choose to live today
Dressed in the clothes
Of who I am, discarding
The costumes designed
By others who have not 
Met my spirit in true
Communication. I choose
To be the face I see
In the mirror undisguised
By the caricatures drawn
By those with intent
For power or hidden 
Motives creating harm.
I choose to hold space 
For those whose words show
They know a better way 
Than what was then. I give
The room to grow into
What they know could be.
I choose to live 
At peace with my soul
By living at peace 
With others.
