“Almost Me”

Chasing a result

Left me feeling bare

Worthiness questioned

Happiness was rare


Incomplete body

Unnatural lull

Focused surface view

My glass was half full


As I searched outside

I would squint to see

Always wanting more

That I’m almost me


Then I stopped the chase

Listened to my heart

Set aside my fears

And played my true part


Using what I have

Trusting it’s enough

Letting my light shine

Clearing out old stuff


Being my true self

Weight began to shed

Forward moving now

No more have to tread


Intentions in sync

Life clearly in flow

Always been complete

I just didn’t know


Sun shining brighter

Gratitude in stow

No more almost me

I was always whole
