Mantra

True words

are unsinkable

they rise to the top

like oil on the surface.

 

The rocks you tied to them

never enough weight to drown

what you didn’t want shared, temporarily

kept hidden under your tongue.

True words will escape, eventually

 

Your enclosed truth

held hostage by fear

wants to fly.

Let it.

Inspired by Monday Mantras and the word MANTRA -The literal Chinese translation of the word mantra is “true words.” Seek your truth and let this unique manta guide you through the week.  Mine is “Trust the journey.”
