This poem is for every solider of Love.
I see you. I feel you. I appreciate you.
You, your work, your life, your spirit, ALL matter.
I chose this army green for my toes (nails)
Cuz I’ve been a soldier for years
Though I didn’t expect you to know.
I’ve been walking these trenches of life’s tests and lessons
Trying to figure out my purpose
And the reasons for these hardships
But on my hands I went with a
White-out white to remind me
To rise above the trenches
And step into the light.
It’s hard to do that,
Yes I know,
But my mission in this life
Is to lead with love
And I can’t do that
If I’m constantly looking over my shoulder
Or looking back to a past that was.
I realize that I am love, and
With it comes responsibility
With the knowledge I’ll be doing it
While constantly facing my fears and insecurities,
Knowing that not everyone will get it
Knowing that it’s not a
One-time-show-love-and-it-will-change-everything kind of ride,
But stand tall, show up every day
And lead your life with love.
Love. Love. Love. Love.
