belonging / trusting our truest self

I don’t really belong to my past, do I?

How does my past belong to me?

We don’t belong TO each other, but could we belong WITH each other?

If I didn’t belong before, how did I come to belong?

This IS what I longed for, here, now… isn’t it?

If what I wanted… NEEDED… was a sense of belonging,

how did that sense arrive, and where did it come from?

How can we trust our senses?

In some ways they are all we have…

I said before that we ARE our feelings,

so it’s up to us to trust our selves, but

if we we only ‘become’ our truest selves when we belong,

how do we first find the peace to let go of fear and pain

that gets in the way of that crucial self-trust?
