just being me

By Rachel Awes on October 15, 2012

just being me
i awake. open my eyes. blood
courses through my veins.
oxygen fills my lungs. my head
thinks thoughts + heart chases
wisdom. my arms wrap around
life + lips say “you matter” + “i
love you”. when pain comes, i
heal + when joy comes, i clap my
hands. when the sun goes down i
say “thank you” + melt back into
another evening of dreams.
this is epic enough for me.

for pre-order, along with a print of the image
that accompanies it in the book + other fun goodies,
like a t-shirt + mug 🙂

sending out love to you being you
