note to self – armor

and if you find yourself
feeling soft, pliant,
bending, swaying
in what seems
a gentle wind
engulfed in
tenderness,

let yourself bend,
sway, be engulfed
be light, float, if that
is what’s consuming you

it is a gift
when the armor
which we wear so long
somehow loosens, slips
from our chests,
teaches us other
definitions of strength,
of courage,
teaches us
love.
