Finding yourself

That contraction
in your center of gravity;
you know the place,
the space where you tuck
the little pains of life
and where your deepest
cries come from.
That,
right there,
is where you need to look
for all the ways in which
you walked away
from the truth of you.
Don’t look outside here
for you won’t find yourself.
You will find yourself here,
in your place of greatest aching.
