Just be

Why can I not just be Be at ease with being me Ease myself into an easy flow Jeez, is that part of me a flaw My bloom is way past its glow All motion now rendered slow Mixed emotions bout to blow And my mood doomed to waffle I'm fearful life is foredoomed to be awful Maybe its best to cut loose the old self Set my aura aside to rest on a shelf Shake loose my cells till they unform to dally around freely without form So I can be as one with the norm Let all fear step back now with a bow As I take a chance to step up and wow It's about time I cease being reactive Seize the day, vibrate on positive And still strive to be progressive Even while I live in active procrastination Remaining passive in my participation I wait till I receive a valid sign of progress It's since proved to be a very useful process That filters my mind of excess stress It lightens my thoughts so they run clear and free Freed my guilt and shame too, I did see them flee Now I intend to be a lot more cautious I can't keep up with feeling overly anxious Not over a few missed milestones My neck won't tote any hefty millstones If I do concede to this new slow pace Will I find a space to fit in, in this place So as to face my inner self in peace Maybe then I can at last just be Finally at ease with being me
