I drew a circle around me
Not to restrict my wings!
But to adore the beauty of my presence.
To feel the warmth of my love,
To embrace the mirth of my laughter.
To celebrate the joy of finding myself.
To limit the buzz of people around me
Judgments all unkind.
To rise high and numb all emotions odd.
It’s a step back to protect myself,
To enfold myself with open hands
Or just another step forward.
Clasping myself firm.
