The person you are trying to let go of.

That heartbreak that feels too big to bear.

You’re already doing it,

And you’re closer than you think.

The sadness that weighs on your shoulders.

The heaviness that sits like an elephant on your chest.

Breath by breath, you are moving through it,

And you are closer than you think.

The person you are praying to forgive.

That grief you are desperate to release.

You’re already doing it,

And you’re closer than you think.

The person you admire.

The woman you long to become.

You are her and she is you,

And you are closer than you think.

The vision you are striving towards.

That dream that feels out of reach.

You’re already doing it,

And you’re closer than you think.

The end will be unrecognizable from the picture in your head,

But you’ll know it when you get there by the way you feel in your skin.

Rebecca Campbell - You're Already Doing It Poem
