I will never give you up. I will always search for ways to become centered in you. Even in the face of loss, coercion, moments that are nothing more than survival, doubt, self-hatred, attack, I will seek to restore you. Even when I am afraid of you, I will not sacrifice you. Because you are central to my spirit and my growth. You are my power and I am in charge of you, responsible for you, accountable to you, entitled to shape you, make choices about you, live rooted in you. I will not turn you over to anyone, lose you in anyone, or sacrifice you for anyone. They may try to take you from me, but they will not succeed. Like a humming bird, you will fly back to me and I will claim you.
With utter conviction,
