You can’t Make me!
I can choose!
It’s My life not your
Suffocating Expectations.
Access Denied to
My Inner World.
You can rape my
Body.
Spit cruel words.
Rage like you
Want me to die.
I am rising Inside
And there’s nothing
You can do about that!
My brain is mine.
My heart is mine.
My bones and lustful
Feelings are mine.
Words that bubble
Up from the Bowels of me
Tongue, lining of lips,
Breasts, hips
Mine.
You can lock me in
A room and the
Songs that sing inside
Memories
Imagination
Sweat,
Breath,
Lungs, ribs
Vulva
A womb that grew
Two babies
All mine.

Positive gratitude
Cannot manipulate God
To Grant
Three-Year-Old
Gimmee Game
Of Demands, wants,
Aspirations, desires,
Wishes, dreams, or hopes

Accept exactly the Way Life
Is
People, inanimate
Objects work or not.
Cuss at the
Computer that
Doesn’t stop Beeping,
people who
Choose differently
than you.
OR
Practice softening
Sphincter
Every single time
Underwear gets in a wad like
A wedgie or tangled thong.
Choose wispy hair.
Choose pandemic.
Choose kindness.
Choose this moment.
Right Here
Right Now.

  1. Very Beautiful Laura! What a resistance, what a rage, what a hurt and pain and the same time what beautiful rising. Awareness of the experience of the body and the same time the awareness that nobody can touch the Inner Being.
    When reading this and “accept exactly the Way Life Is” one needs courage to choose and live so.
    Beautiful, thank you so much!

    • Thank you so much for all your kind words and meaningful reflections offered here, Ineke! Yes, the expansion of the Inner Being continues to be very profound and empowering-a reclaiming, a purging of what was never true, an expansion of compassion and courage that won’t ever stop. Oh, I’m so grateful you felt the message inside this poem for that is where I live my life from now-the Inner Creative Beautiful Being. I observe that you do too!! Grateful.
