The Day

by Shervin on December 7, 2020

We sometimes seek approval from outside to feel worthy and loved.

Poem below reflects on when we decide to change the focus of our seeking.

                               ——————————————————

The day that I connected with the one who has always walked in my shoes.

The day that I connected with the one who has always laughed and cried with me.

The day that I connected with the one who has never been busy for me.

The day that I took charge for my well-being.

The day that I put down the begging bowl.

The day that I searched for the lost one within.

The day that I accepted myself as I have accepted my other friends.

The day I cared about myself as I have cared for my other friends.

The day I listened to myself as I listened to my other friends.

The day I showed empathy for myself as I have shown for my friends.

The day I held myself and said “I understand”, as I have said to my friends.

The day I felt content and calm as I have been in the presence of a loving friend.

The day that I did not have to wait for anything outside of me to feel supported.

The day I used my kindness to be kind to me.

The day that I sobbed in joy as I had finally met my lost friend.

The day I could share my feelings without effort, expectations or judgements.

The day I could be myself and be perfectly OK with me.

The day that I realized what it really means to be at peace.

The day that I become my best friend.

The day that I could love more.
