my life before me

the past
before me
was meant to challenge me
to reason with
to do with
to have been with
to have experienced
to have existed with
in this human form
so i could learn for the life
before me

today i am
the culmination of the parts
of the matrix of my body
inner mind, soul, heart and spirit
as I had connected to life as it was

my life before me

in front of me
the future
beckons me 
to plow on
despite fears
despite anxiety
despite depression
it calls upon me 
to soothe
to aid
to comfort

to be
me, the real me
not the repressed me
so i can be better
than the human I was before me
as I am today and and could be tomorrow
and be the me
that is meant to be
to fulfill the purpose
for being here
in the first place.

and this is what motivates living especially at times when i feel i am drowning.

Namasté, Leah
