The Day 5 prompt: What’s your elevator pitch?
I’m somewhere between home and away.
I say few words but I search for big meaning.
My problems are solved by getting close to the shore, stretching on mountains, and leaping.
I sweat out what’s not in my control and I refine what is.
Sometimes I recharge by staying in my room with the window open looking up remedies to the toxins in my life,
but other times that drains me.
Sometimes it ignites me to be around other humans,
other times it picks me apart.
I may not see the lines of should and shouldn’t,
my street smarts come and go between
being too honest and not being real enough.
I am both home and away.
Because there is a world in me and I am in this world.
I feel in English and think in a foreign tongue.
I’m not even sure what language my heart speaks.
Slowly I learn I can’t validate myself to myself solely through actions,
nor can I meditate on things that have never made me happy or whole hoping suddenly it will just click.
Things don’t click,
I think too much about what’s wrong with me and too little about what’s wrong with the world and how to fix it.
That is something I’d like to change.
I am kind and I’ll support you in the most silent of ways.
I want to get to know you by sharing intimate space with you.
Let’s share a kitchen or a walk in the hills or
that look across the table.
Most importantly, though,
is that I’m always starting and starting again and looking,
even though I’m afraid.
I’m always getting out when my comfort zone is in.
I cut loose the devils in my head so their soil grows a garden of positivity, again and again at each step between home and away.
My steps are big steps, I just don’t know it yet.
