be vast....

ALL SHE WANTED
WAS FIND A PLACE TO STRETCH HER BONES
A PLACE TO LENGTHEN HER SMILES
AND SPREAD HER HAIR
A PLACE WHERE HER LEGS COULD WALK
WITHOUT CUTTING AND BRUISING
A PLACE UNCHAINED
SHE WAS BORN OUT OF OCEAN BREATH.
I REMINDED HER;
‘STOP POURING SO MUCH OF YOURSELF
INTO HEARTS THAT HAVE NO ROOM FOR THEMSELVES
DO NOT THIN YOURSELF
BE VAST
YOU DO NOT BRING THE OCEAN TO A RIVER’
