Like Baby's Breath

It’s not true
that people will like me
only if
they cannot see who I am.
 Its not true
(even though I always thought it was)

There’s no one there
for them to see
anyway. And
I have to be
what I am given to be.

Which, in this instant
is HERE. Fully open
utterly available
taken anew in each moment
by waves 
of unending Love.

If others feel uneasy
with this Vast
S p a c i o u s 
Life Force,
Why is it my job
to shield them?
What am I saving them from?
Who is being served?
What do I think I am?
