Julie B

Just Be

Even though she could not swim 

She dived into the wreckage

To retrieve the bottle

The bottle with the message inside 

The message read ...

Dont be a watered down version of yourself !

      Nor lose yourself in the chains of immature love. A caged tiger is no longer the majestic wild beast but a confused and humiliated stripey thing.

        watered down or not, acknowledging the journey is what I find: key,
        we human's are malleable members of existence, sculpted by our jagged paths and sharp - tumultuous turns of life,
        when we can accept that fact
        and realise, we are allowed
        'to be:
        who we need or want
        wherever and when
        we let ourselves
        just be...'
        maybe then, we'll take a second to look around
        see that landscape view of life,
        instead of zooming-in
        on our reflections
        in other's eyes...
        thanks for inspiring my little reply,
        some insightful thoughts you've shared, a good read
