You and I — #NaPoWriMo DAY 11

Context: read the prompt here, for today’s instead of exchange of letters, I have written one for my bestfriend and myself. Let’s be humble to ourselves starting today and mindful about everyone we’re close to.
Today’s featured image is clicked by my bestfriend, go tell her all about her amazing photography.

Dear bestfriend,

I hope this letter finds you kind, I hope it finds you at ease,
I hope it finds you as you were born.. a soft spring breeze.

I am writing this letter to inform you that your time is not up,
that you still have space to unfold,
that you are a continuum that doesn’t have to settle
for the broken universe where you were unravelled.

You, love, are not limited to your synonyms.
You, love, can develop into a hurricane that doesn’t dwell in a farmer’s cabin.
You, love, can develop into a hurricane that travels between the back of your mind and its front.
You, love, can develop into a hurricane with knowledge and sense of self

You, love, can develop into a sandstorm speaking the names of the deserts to your left and to your right.
You, love, can develop into a sandstorm that travels beyond the desert.
You, my love can develop into a sandstorm carrying a water-well for the thirsty.

You, love, can develop into an ocean that doesn’t stand in arrogance where there is land.
You, love, can develop into an ocean that waxes and wanes to the rhythm of the moonlight caressing you.
You, my love, can develop into an ocean that doesn’t erode the rocks standing on its shore.

You, love, can develop into a soft spring breeze that makes a home of all the other seasons.
You, love, can develop into a soft spring breeze that makes people be hopeful again.
You, love, can develop into a soft spring breeze that knows her worth and fully embraces it
You, my love can develop into the synonyms you are not limited to.

Kindly find attached to this letter that I gave you for your every birthday and all the love they ever carried
Kindly find attached to this letter the appreciation you have for everyone in your life and all of it is reciprocated twice the amount,
Kindly find attached to this letter that you’re not lost, you are becoming better version of yourself everyday
Kindly find attached to this letter that i love you more than yesterday but less than tomorrow

Love,
Moony.

A letter to me.
Not the younger me,
or the older me,
but me.
The one fighting today.

It’s a letter to my hands,
for all they have created,
many ideas that have flourished,
even this poem made elated.

It’s a letter to my feet,
for all they have carried,
standing when I fall,
rising when I am buried.

Even a letter to my eyes or ears,
for everything they’ve seen or heard,
grateful for what has been blocked out,
creating room for more that is cured.

These key parts of me,
while I could thank them more,
help me through the day,
even when I am sore.

Just a letter to my body,
forgiveness I would wish,
for all the scars and shame,
that I will never miss.

Forgive me for not loving you,
the way I know I should,
one day you will know,
of all how much I could.

It’s a letter to my mind,
a place that is haunted,
whispers that beg,
wishing to only be wanted.

I’ve cursed you daily,
wanting you to be better,
but never really thinking,
until I wrote this letter.

Yes you can be bad,
yes you can be sick,
but you are still my mind,
and that is something that will stick.

But sometimes you have thoughts,
that are wild and free,
creating ideas,
that can fill will glee.

So for that you are wanted,
for all I take for granted,
for staying by my side,
for not leaving me stranded.

As I get older,
and the more that I see,
on how I should not treat my mind and body,
so pitifully.

Though it has its flaws,
a bad day,
a rough night,
I will always say,
that I need to treat it right.

So this is a letter to me,
the one living today,
to never forget,
why things are this way.

For my body is not perfect,
and neither is my mind,
but it always teaches me lessons,
on how to always be kind.
