I was born a magical kid.

I once stood out among my friends.

I once was playful.

I once could think and act fast.

I once was proud of who I was and
it showed in my smile.

I was energetic and laughed easily and often.

Over time I believed that I needed to fit in
to be liked by others.

Over time I believed that I needed to dim my inner light
to be accepted by others
who have lost contact with their own magical self.

Now what and who I have turned into?

I am consumed by shame, guilt, grief and sorrow.

I walk lifelessly
with a bent frame.

I carry lots of baggage
keeping me from playing.

Instead of hearing my childhood laughter and enthusiasm
I hear myself saying...
“Oh no”, “I can’t”, “I don’t wanna”.

I speak with a soft voice
so I do not offend anyone
or attract attention to myself.

Today, I resurrect my real self!

Today, I walk through the seemingly long illusion of pleasing others.

I now use my strong voice to define my boundaries.

I now use a strong voice to express my truth.

I now take pride in my laughter and playfulness.

I now have dropped the heavy baggage.

I now stand tall and bright.

Welcome to wise, curious, playful
magical me.

I like this magical poem.  I like that you tell the reader what you did to  get from there  to here.

each on our journey some of us are still inside ourselves finding our voice, some of us are spinning, some of us during the search arrive at a knowledge that works. 

Today, I resurrect my real self!

Today, I walk through the seemingly long illusion of pleasing others.

I now use my strong voice to define my boundaries.

enjoyed reading this very much.

Z,

Thanks. Yes sometimes we do not know what we are dealing with. Identifying our patterns is the key.
