I used to search for the Truth “out there”
Let myself be told what was real and what was not
I was taught what to believe by my elders
To accept what I read in textbooks and such
I learned to analyze it all, think it through,
Used my brain and thinking to try to figure things out
But no more.
My body, in her intimate, ultimate wisdom,
Has taught me a new way to believe, to know
My body knows my truth, my body knows the world
I have learned a new way to answer my questions
Now, I ask my body for the answers, and I listen to her
My body never lies.
