What Inspires Me……………..

Honor

What does it mean to honor thyself
Different from respect
not the same as love

How does one honor thyself
if we don’t understand what the
word really means

Loving myself means
doing good things for myself
saying and believing in myself
respecting my past lessons
moving forward humbly
free of judging myself for where I have been

I get confused with the concept of
honor verses respect
I view respect as working hand and hand
with honor

Respecting myself means to treat myself
as I would a friend or someone I love
with kindness

Honor myself
I tell myself the truth and I find ways
to be truthful to others without hurting them
at the same time doing the right thing for myself
instead of what is right for someone else

So today I honor myself
that what once was no longer is
that which I desire has yet to come
living in between feels so upsurd

I am not here or there
ackward I feel moving around in the void
as if lost in the night
awaiting first light

I am still here
honoring my journey
not sure who I am
yet, trusting I am on the right path for me
