Bearing My Soul

A quick and dirty poem inspired by my vacation retreat experience:

Bearing My Soul

I am
who I am.

To bear my soul is to
carry the knowledge
of who I am.

To bare my soul is to
reveal the knowledge
of who I am.

My soul as a bear
is strong yet weak,
frightened yet courageous,
healed yet wounded,
unsure yet grounded,
spiritual and physical,
simple and complex.

To bear my soul is to
discover and accept
who I am.

To bare my soul is to
open and risk
who I am.

I am
who I am.
It is enough
and it is good.
