Seen- Alexia Jasmene
By: Alexia Jasmene
What is this feeling of being grounded with a look?
For one who’s been frantic for so long,
This peace is foreign,
This peace is new,
This peace is, nice…
I feel at ease in the shimmers of your soul when you see me.
It soothes my heart and calms my mind.
I feel like a leaf floating down the stream on a new adventure
Just waiting to see where the flow goes.
I feel grounded in my womanhood, in my personhood for my right to exist
To have space for myself and others that seems to never end.
I feel sore, getting used to this joy for a heart that’s known so much pain,
But feel my progress when I allow myself to be moved by my breath.
I feel enough and beautiful and precious when I gaze into your eyes,
Sea foam green to an icy sky blue that delights.
I feel melted when you smile and even more when I’m the cause,
Because I am creating happiness, in a lovely duet of a song.
I feel seen, I guess is what I’m trying to say,
And you inspire me to work on seeing you and others everyday.
