To Whom Do You Belong

Door

I belong to myself
and to my family
to my God
and to Mama Earth

I am a complex world
wrapped inside one soul
In rare moments
I open the door 
allowing another in
but mostly 
hiding the truth
of my multifaceted light

Belonging to myself
feels like
eyes clear and sparkling
a walk filled with confidence
a certain sway in the hips
that smile wrapping you in love
I've had glimpses
days when I felt
I owned myself
and my place in the world
I felt full sized
free to be all of me

But the true freedom
to always be who I am 
live without
feeling I'm too much
or not quite right
like I need to 
wrap my light
in filtering cloth
only show approved
bits and pieces -
that's the real journey
