Back To The Place I Bloom, Grow And Thrive — I Dare You To Live

BY KEREN STANTON

Slipping
is so easy.

How quickly I turn away
from ritual
from that which serves
which heals
and get caught up again
and whither.

Suddenly
I look around and I’ve lost my way
in the rubble
the whispers
in the guilt.

Forgetting the steps
though I’ve walked them before
and the pain seeps into my bones.

Searching
eyes casting around
hands grasping
unrest
dis-ease
listening to the shit
stuck in my head
when my body knows the way already
when I should trust my footfalls
and the autonomous movements of my flesh.

Sinking
back into myself
where the answers lie
where the peace is
to the place I bloom from
to nourish, to grow, to thrive.

Self isn’t selfish.
Self is vital.
Self is Life.

I dare you to live.

Keren Stanton

Keren Stanton is a wild woman, shedding off the too-tight skin of suburbia and the rigid mantle of the condemnation of Man. Most in love with the forest, the smell of the dank earth, she is committed to the soul-work of holding a lantern aloft in the darkness, whether that light shines a path out of the darkness or a way to walk deeper into it. She doesn’t have the answers, but she does know the way. She wears the title of Witch with pride and honor, as it is her birthright and the only name that fits. She knows that true love is fierce love and that giving up on her dreams and her message is never an option. And so she speaks.
