Lucero Speaks

Embracing ALL

Blue

“I take it back”

4 words that pierced my heart

The phrase that initiated a new path, a restart

I’ve carried baggage filled with pain

But repeating mistakes is something I’ve been trained

To know is utterly insane

Make a different choice

Find an open space

Throw it to a different place

The mirror stares me in the face

Illusion

Growth

What do I want…

Regret, sadness, bleeding soul

Or elements that make me whole

What lingers

What is real

Is it possible to fully heal

I don’t know

I have no answer, no path to “how”

Peace resides within the NOW

I’ll step off cliffs, and as I fall

My heart expands

embracing ALL
