Replacing Shame

Flush rising.

Awareness,

frantically searching

for an exit.

The naked

discomfort

of this moment.

Crawling

inside myself.

Into a dark

hidden space.


Shame overriding

thoughts.

A singular focus.

Wishing for every

molecule

to suddenly

implode.

Vanishing

into

nothingness.


Frozen

in place.

Waterboarded

in shame.


Fuck that.


I unsubscribe

from shame.

I will no longer

let shame

into my universe.


I will no longer

cower

in that deadend

place.

Feeding the

inner critic,

as he tells me

he was right.

I will no longer

let shame trap me

in hopelessness

or worthlessness.


I choose

to intentionally replace

shame

with love.

I will devoutly

fill the hole

of shame

with love

for others

and self.

I will replace hiding,

with showing up.

I will replace paralysis

with the power

of love

to change

everything.


I will proudly

embrace

the ability to evolve.

Love myself

through each misstep.

Cultivating wisdom

only gained

through a life

bravely lived.
