Showing Up

If I wasn't afraid
or busy second guessing
my own thin reasons
I would have have
showed up sooner for my own life
instead of making sure I showed up
for everything else

Instead of torque
from resisting
all the messy ways
a life might be

I would have leaned in
to the watery world
and let it both wash over
and become me
