Quietly quietly, she sits alone,
staring at the beauty and glow
of those precious things
that have the quality of being
She can’t share them, though, because
she stole them. Her guilt
dims their light, when she thinks about it,
about how she sneaked in
to steal what her heart knew
could be hers for real.
She can’t talk about them, since
these precious gems are wrapped
in a smoky suffocating shame.
She can’t really use them publicly,
because when you’re spiritually shoplifting
the things you want the most
you have no clue as to how to make them a part of you.
Everything else in her life stayed the same,
because no change came to visit
when she settled for games of pretence.
One night, sitting with her
precious little things by the fire,
how it would feel
to pay with courage and zeal
and make those gems her true and honestly earned treasure.
And so she did...
And to this day
she has been living a life of bliss
rather than of a pondering thief,
the life of one
Are you sneaking quietly
around the things and experiences
you wish were part of your life,
and want to learn
how to go for what you want
without fear or apology?
