Tell me who you are

who are you
they ask

i'm tamara
a mother
a sister
a daughter
a lover

a writer
a storyteller
a mover
a shaker

tell me, who are you?
they command

i am
the sun
the moon
the stars
a speck
starlight
deep forests
boundless oceans
momma earth
the rivers
the lakes

TELL ME WHO YOU ARE
they shake

i'm
the wind
on your face

the crunch of leaves
with each step

the sound of rain
on the roof

i am you
you are me

i am
the homeless man
you see
the smile
on his face
the children
as they play
the birds
as they sing

myself
yourself

everything
nothing

the light
and the dark

TELL ME WHO YOU ARE
they roar

I AM
a poet
a goddess
a healer
a teacher
kitchen dancer
chocolate lover
kale blender
carrot steamer

a star gazer
sunrise watcher
cloud counter

i'm an asshole at times

I'm sad
confused
overwhelmed
empowered
genuine
authentic

raw
real

i am
pure love
pure light
effortless effort
wilful surrender

i am...yin

i am...yang

i am...yoga

i
am
more gentle and powerful
than i've ever known

tell me who you are
they whisper
as tears
stream down
their face

i
am
softening

learning
grace

i
am

this
one
last
courageous
extraordinary
breath

i am
