Soft- A Poem About Setting Boundaires

July 17, 2014 | 6 Comments

My tender heart, displayed on sleeve
Extended toward every bit of stardust I meet
Can one wear innards on the edges and keep them safe?
I’ve often doubted it, and so
I’ve toyed with change and
Felt the slick of bitterness on my tongue, then
Spat in the grass
I refuse to turn hard
It’s a constant challenge
To let this baby fly
Yet keep her safe and dry
The answer?
Enough
Enough unstructured flinging about
Enough unthought-out yeses
Enough giving it all while facing an abyss
Enough starving and cutting and stuffing and stitching
Enough of this forgetfulness regarding myself and those I hold most dear
You hear?
My heart’s not hard, and my guts are soft
But I have bones and boundaries on my side
I’m taking care of me
And this has gotta be
Enough.

Setting boundaries helps with self-care
