now I know
I thought I wasn't loved
but now I know that I am love and yes, loved
I thought there were no words inside me
but now I know there are vast silences
I thought my body was a dry husk
but now I know it's sensation and dancing light
I thought I wasn't allowed
but now I know that I'll be here anyhow because …
because I do care
because shame and fear are no longer welcome here
I thought I was alone but now I know
