Essence of You

Essence – this is who you are
It is the soul shining through
The spirit self, the energetic truth
This connection to the deeper currents
Where the ancients still reside


And what I am realizing
In our overlapping spheres
Is that you choose to embody essence
I feel your strength – you, you are a beacon
A light for love, for the self


In a world conditioned to
Reject those in their power
I see you stumble, rise, and move forward
As flowers sprout and turn to face the sun
From the footsteps which you’ve made.
