I am broken
I am whole
I am starving
I am full

My body yearns for contact
My mind is full of fear
My heart is simply racing
My spirit keeps me here

Here is where I’m meant to be
Here is where I learn
Here is where I run away
Here is where I turn

I turn inside
I want to hide
I know I’m not ok

I go outside
I want to cry
Know what I need to say

I trust I’m given everything
When at last I choose to burn
The truth emerges gracefully
When I release my obsession to earn

I burn what doesn’t serve me
Let go of pain that’s real
Burn what flames engulf me
Burn the ache I feel

But first I have to let it
Eat me up alive
I have to fall to get back up
To fail before I thrive
