i believe in me

I believe in myself. I believe in the hands that work, in the brains that think, and in the hearts that love.
— richard branson

This morning I wrote lines and lines
of things that I don't want

It may seem counter-intuitive
It may seem to be too much attention
given to that which I don't want in my life

But I need clarity
and I need to release
and wash away
the things that just don't serve me well

Even if they belonged with me for awhile
They don't fit my life now
Nor is there any room in my future

I am moving forward
Running head-long into what lies ahead
I believe in her
I believe in the woman ahead of me
