We Must

I recently stumbled across a new (to me) artist, Mindy Lacefield, and was wandering through her blog and found a great poem.  It's from her friend, Jenn and I asked permission to post it since I don't know either of these talented ladies.  Mindy wrote back and said she didn't think Jenn would mind.  I love this for the simplicity and for the reminder that we are each unique, special and amazing exactly as we are.




We Must
We must tell the truth of our story
Share all of the pieces that make up who we are
We must show ourselves to the world
Perfectly imperfect
Exactly as we are
Because we are beautiful creatures
Creating magic wherever we go
Just by being ourselves

We must open up our hearts and soul
Allow them to let beauty and goodness to enter
We must not be afraid of this
Soak it all in
Embrace what is before us
Then share it with the world

We must breathe deeply
Letting it all in
The happiness as well as the sadness
Each of these things balancing out the other
Show them all to the world
Wear them proudly
So that you can let others in

We must be true to ourselves
Each and every day
Standing tall in who we are
We must
