moving like a cloud

imagine if you could move through the world with no fear 

no hesitation 

that every encounter made you stronger

more nimble

imagine if you didn’t worry about what people say

or what they think

or if you’re pleasing someone 

imagine if you recognized parts you didn’t like about yourself

and they disappeared

that they were capable of growing

imagine how fluid you’d be 

moving through the world like a cloud in the sky

imagine if you didn’t have to hang on so tightly 

for things to happen 

imagine if you could glide and get  what needed to be done

done

you would be so free

you would be so light

you could breathe again

you could think of nothing 

you could think of everything 

you could be

if you knew that you know

if you didn’t have to try 

because you could do it already

and then it just becomes a matter of when 

you could move with such joy

 without fear all

let me set the record straight

you are not too big

you are not too old 

you are not too much
you are not too little

you are not alone

you are not helpless
you have a voice

you are strong

you have power
you don’t have to get everything right

you don’t need to apologize

you don’t need to hide
you are intelligent

you are full of promise

you are capable
there’s no such thing as the perfect size

the perfect shape

the perfect color

the perfect way of talking

the perfect way of living

the perfect way of being
you are wise beyond your years

you see a world as an empty canvas

you know what to do
you are not the misunderstanding they’d put on you

you are not what you fear 

you are not crazy
you don’t need to fight them

you don’t need to control

you don’t need to hold on
you can do what you like

you can like what you like

you can enjoy what you like
and you can share what you love

with everyone

because you are strong

because you have heart 

because you are you
