The Magic of Self-Acceptance

“The problem is not being aware of yourself, but loving the person you find out you are,” Tasha Eurich, Insight

I am summoning a djinni

whose task it is to serve me,

a loving coach enrolled

in loosening the hold

of immature deceptions

and childhood misperceptions.

The scolds that I internalized

the anger I don’t vocalize

result in inflammation

an inner conflagration.

Ah, magic spirit, I implore —

chained here in an inner war,

I’m not looking to be doused

though I’m in a flaming house.

I want to love this inner rage

and loose it from its fatal cage.

This fury seemed my weakest link

but with your help, I’ll get in sync

with the fire goddess in my soul

no longer shattered, finally whole!
