when my heart feels empty

your seo term here

if my heart feels empty

and there is nothing left to give,

may it still offer myself love

that i may come back to center.


if my world feel stifled and silent

and i have none to offer you today

may my thoughts be kind to me

that i may come back to balance.


if compassion to the world

falls short from me today

may i give all i have to give to myself in love

that i may come back to equilibrium.


if pain fills this body

and it is challenging for me to outstretch my arm

may i in the least hold my own hand

that i may come back to whole.


if joy finds it hard to pass through as laughter

and we live together in some sadness

may i hold a candle in my heart that can spark again

that i may come back to balance.


if you need me to be the sun

but i am in fact the moon

may a rushing river cool our hearts

honoring who we really are.


if winter surrounds you

but it is the light of summer you seek

may roots fortify and flowers bloom

in the spring and autumn of your dreams.


if the days dealings are so challenging

and i have a hard time smiling on to you

may a warm, calm smile shine upon myself

that i may come back to praise.


if the tragedy and horrors of today

make it hard to find the reverence in this moment or ten

may i offer myself reverence for this one precious and tender life that is mine.

that i may come back to me.

that we may find our way back

to reciprocity.


About K. Luna Lea

Pronouns: She/Her & They/Them. Transitionary experiences have cracked me open time and time again, bearing a thunder in my heart so loud it became impossible to ignore: "Be vulnerable.  Let go.  Fail and try again.  Always center authenticity." I am profoundly informed by honoring, healing, and serving through my queer identity, androgeny, history of trauma, neurodivergent world view, and an ever expanding dedication to resilience and spirituality each and every day. My own expriences being stigmatized greatly impacted my willingness to be vulnerable.  The outcome:  Self sensorship and diminished capacity for transformation.  But then a great thing happened.  I decided to turn up the volume of my unsensored inner knowing. Showing up in the world as a writer has been one of the many ways I've learned to ground in and channel my very own authentic voice.
