Be Yourself

Close your eyes.
Forget everything else around you.
Lose all sense of your body
but feel your heart.
Listen to your breathing
as your lungs fill with air.
Cold air that feels sharp
as it flows in your nose.
There's just your mind,
your lungs,
and your heart.
Imagine a single tree.
no sky,
no ground,
no world.
Just a tree.
A fall tree.
Imagine the wind that you feel
on your cheeks and in your hair
blows the leaves off their branches,
frees them from the burdening green life
that kept them grounded
Feel their happiness
as they're flying away,
free to go
wherever the wind will take them
and the best part,
they are unique.
No longer green
like all the others
but letting their
colors shine through
to be different.
Now open your eyes.
