Forgiven & Accepted. ~ Emily Robinson McGill {Poem}

Via Emily Robinson McGIll on Nov 1, 2013

forgive

Forgiven and Accepted

Root Down

Lift Up

Heart Open

Eyes Closed

 

Inhale Fill Up

Exhale Let Go

 

Open Eyes

Open Heart

Ground Down

Reach Up

 

Inhale

Exhale

 

Twist to the right

Two words

In Ink on his back

The yogi next to me

 

Two words

Accepted

Forgiven

 

Inhale

Exhale

 

Back to center

Twist to the left

Still with me

Accepted

Forgiven

 

Inhale

Exhale

 

Back to center

Accepted?

Forgiven?

 

Inhale

Exhale

Years flash by

Could I be?

 

Forgiven?

Accepted?

Twist back to the right

 

He’s edgy

He’s hard

He’s accepted

He’s forgiven

 

Twists detoxify

Twists heal

 

I avoid them

Twists

 

Not enough twists

To detoxify

My thoughts

My history

My 10pm spoonfuls of peanut butter

 

Twist to the left

I could be

Forgiven

Accepted

 

Root Down

Reach Up

Inhale

Exhale

 

Forgive

Accept

 

To be

 

Forgiven

Accepted

 

Inhale

Exhale
