voices


IMG_2211.JPG

Uniqueness given but too insecure to discover it.

You are inferior, they said. Alone. Not enough.

My tries to adjust failed bitterly, my opinions tossed by winds and waves.

The illusion of earning my affection through meeting others expectations crushed me.

The voices became louder.

Pulling back from my outer world, trying to create a perfect one in my mind, didn't work.

All I felt was a crazy mess in my inside, growing bigger while my attempts to fight my way out of it failed.

All of it changed with a small whisper.

And as soon as I started listening, it became louder.

Louder than all the other voices. Louder than my own insecurities. With a mighty roar it silenced my storm.

One word and it was done.

Then gently and loving, it began to tell me who I really was, who I really am.

Loved.

Accepted.

Beautiful.

Art.

Uniquely created to represent the One who created me.

My thoughts began to untangle, my heart to heal. Slowly discovering the world inside of me through the eyes of the Artist.

My true self is what I found.

My true self is what I find.

The start of a lifelong journey.

I fell in love with it.

He has started and we will continue.

Intuition poem

Aliya Evans | 1/4/18




She hid behind the shadows of others

knowing exactly where to find

the vitamin she was lacking all along.



Her sunshine

Her happiness

Her vitamin d.



Something so crucial

Yet it was taken for granted

In the hands of comfort.



She resisted change

in exchange for

stability.



Was it the fear of the unknown?

or

the comfort of stability.



Either way

the result left her stagnant

and her happiness spiraled downward

into a deep abyss.



It was only until one day she decided to step into

the mysteries and wonders of sunlight.

That day she returned home on a high note

feeling better than ever.



If you knew exactly where to find your sunlight

why hide behind shadows for so long?



You will only live your best life

by following your intuition

and trusting your heart because

the things we desire most

are waiting for us


just on the other side of fear…

- ARE
