I am filled with words- thoughts, ideas, energy, music, and life.

But I struggle with my physical being.  I open my mouth and the thoughts come out jumbled, disconnected.

I hear the song, but my fingers can’t play it right.  I feel the music, deeply resonating within me, but my clumsy body is heavy and awkward.  I can’t move with it, dance with it.  The music dances inside me, I feel the rhythm, harmony, movement, but my feet trip.

In my last life I was perhaps a mermaid; fluid, graceful, smooth, moving like a symphony, singing in harmony with the waves… but here I have land legs.  I want to open my arms and share the energy, words, love.  But instead I say something dumb and walk into the wall.
