I Learned

I was taught
not to trust the water
for waves can roll over you
rivers can whirl and overflow

I was taught
not to trust the wind
for a light summer breeze
can easily turn into a tornado
that takes everything
and hits you mercilessly
in your face

I was taught
to not trust myself
for there are others
who have more authority

I was taught
to not trust love
for love is like the wind
and the water
A dangerous force
that should be controlled
Love can be taken from you
anytime
You need to earn it
before you can receive
and maybe you’ll even
never be worthy enough

But then I met you
and I learned that
love can be wild like the wind
It can take you high up
into the sky
It can be the powerful force
behind your wings
It can be continuously flowing
like the water
unconditionally given
and there is always enough

And then I started to trust love
like I’d never trusted anything before
And the more I trusted love
the more I trusted the water,
the wind and myself
