Imagine if you stopped trying to hide,
If you stopped slouching
Held your head high
Embraced how you are
Who you are
Imagine how wonderful that would feel —
A thousand times better that trying to cramp into a box that was never designed to fit you.
Imagine the freedom,
The freedom to be you, all of you
The abundance of your soul
Appropriately acknowledged and amplified
Starting with you —
Imagine how glorious that would feel.
Now stop imagining it —
— Cleopatra Shava
