be yourself

be yourself

you are the gift life wants—
precisely as you are—why
else would you be here?

unpack your role to play
throw open the door
let late afternoon sun
warm polished wood

your feet feel the planks
find your center
wriggle your shoulders
and dance—
waltz or boogie or jive,
your way
