There is a place in the throat

You can feel it when you swallow


They form a clump

Like a jar lid

Keeping emotions inside


Be careful of the seal

Things can go rotten in there

Restraint is commendable

But stomach acid does terrible


To an inside that doesnโ€™t ring true

  1. It’s been many days since I’ve been able to sit and just read. And what a pleasure it always is to read your gifts. To be authentic just this morning I had to release some acid. Times that I HAVE to be transparent to speak my truth are not always easy for the listener to “stomach”. Authenticity is sometimes rare. And swallowing my truth hurts. ๐Ÿ’š I just love your words.

  2. โ€œThis above all: to thine own self be true. And it must follow, as the night the day. Thou canst not then be false to any man/Farewell, my blessing season this in thee!โ€.Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Right on, Kate.

  3. Another brilliant work of yours! ๐Ÿ™Œ We have to get out that acid rot and live our truth. You write yours so eloquently. Always inspired by you, Kate!

  4. I feel like this piece sums up my last 2 weeks pretty damn well. I had to finally allow myself to feel, emotions to flow through because that frog in my throat was really starting to ache. Well done๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š

      • Exactly!! Since I’ve taken a special interest in balancing my chakras, I notice my throat and heart chakras more acutely when I’m out of sync! Yes, it feels great to be flowing again๐Ÿ˜Š
