just being me

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.

(excerpt from the book "all i did was listen"
now available at http://rachelawes.etsy.com
for pre-order, along with a print of the image
that accompanies it in the book + other fun goodies,
like a t-shirt + mug :)
