Nia Blue Belt

A slow dive into the depths of the ocean,

Dove deep inside of myself to learn about myself,

Learned how to have a relationship with

The music, class and myself.

Learned how to communicate what I

Was feeling honestly with another person.

Learned to be intimate with the 52 moves of Nia,

Class and myself.

Dove a little bit deeper into my mind

And uncovered the truth about me

Allowed myself to feel,

Expressed what I was feeling,

Allowed the tears to come out

Allowed others to be there for me.

I went through a transformation at Blue Belt.

Learned that I feel the safest laying on the floor,

Learned to take care of myself,

Learned that doing my best varies from day to day,

Learned to love myself and to see the jewel that is inside.

Learned that I have a gift for finding music that

Creates magic and healing.

Learned that I can be there for others and that I am a wounded


Learned that it is my birth right to take up space.

It’s my birth right to feel what I feel

It’s my birthright to heal and to help others to heal.

It’s my choice to live my life.

I choose to live my life.

I choose to love myself.

I choose to help others to heal.

I choose to take a stand against what is right and wrong.

I choose to live in the present moment.

I am a blue Jewel.


What is being Brave?

One of my friends looked at me

And told me, “When are you going to know that

You are brave? You are facing the demons that

Are deep inside of you. You have shared your

Truth with the world. You have advocated for

Others. That is being brave. Now the best thing, you

Can do is to look in the mirror and

say I love you. Also, to let go of the pain

you are feeling, start to love yourself, let

the tears come out and love yourself. You need to realize

how brave you are. You are valuable to the people

you know. When are you going to start to believe it yourself?

Heal your heart one day at a time, one tear

at a time, and one moment at a time.

It’s okay to be real with yourself and honest about

What you are really feeling deep inside. Let yourself

Feel it.”

Being brave is facing the demons and healing yourself.

Being brave is allowing yourself to truly love yourself.

Being brave is knowing that your worth comes from within yourself.


Storm: Mighty Horse

I met you one day in June when

Me and my friends came from the

Healing retreat, I was on.

You were in your stall in the barn,

I saw how beautiful you were and

I was drawn to come meet you.


I found that you were a mighty horse

Whose name is Storm,

Your head was covered with

A mask because you were hurt,

I related to you since I was used to wearing

A mask to protect myself,

I saw the beauty that was inside of you

Through the mask you was wearing.

I came over and started touching you,

You loved the attention that I was giving you,

We connected on an emotional level that day.


The next time I saw you, I was very upset

And very emotional from having a challenging day.

I came to stand beside you

And you put your head over my shoulder

You were there for me and comforted me,

You helped me to heal that day by just being

A magnificent horse and being my friend.

I started crying more and was glad that you were


You saw into me and provided a safe

Place for me to feel what I was feeling.

Let Go

Take some deep breaths,

Feel your feet on the floor,

Take some deep breaths,

Feel your inhale and exhale,

Look at what all is around you


Realize that you have grown and changed,

There is no need to hold on to your past any more,

You know what direction you are going in

And the trauma from your past has held you long enough,

It’s time to start living,

It’s time to say enough pain,

It’s time to love yourself,


The past is no longer serving me,

I do not need this pain any more,

I am much stronger than them,

I am a brave, strong, compassionate Warrior

Who knows where she wants to take her life.


Today is the day that we let go.
