What My Spirit Wishes For

My spirit wishes to dance

Freed from any restrictions my body may hold

Freed from the heavy feeling

of too much potato chips

too much coke

too much sitting still

and too much trying not to


My spirit speaks with two tongues


One part wanting, yearning to fly free

to be wild

to scream

to drum and chant

and let herself go

deep into the wild forest


One part wanting, hoping

to become an Accomplished Lady

of the Victorian sort

reading literature

keeping a journal

in a calm and strict

and above all

predictable environment


My spirit wishes for both

but perhaps not at the same time


My spirit wishes for freedom

to choose

which part it could realize


and in what manner


But it always wishes

to dance

  1. This was such a great post. I loved the beauty and truth of it. And the video was wonderful.

    As you wish for yourself, so I truly wish for you also.
