Sometimes it feels like my body isn't for me.
it's for a baby.
a stranger.
a lover.
someone who never had permission.
those who feel entitled to comment on it--condemn or congratulate or whisper.
Yet,
it cannot be mine when an outside source has it's happiness and content tied to my flesh. it cannot be mine when the power to classify it has been sold to the highest bidder.
i may be exhausted-
sobbing-
bleeding-
curling my toes in utter pain-
It doesn't matter. ...Here they come again...
The old wolves with new faces that live in my head and somehow take form in reality again.
there's only one way out for me
and that is through. the way out is through...my breath shakes. the way out is through...my voices quivers. the way out is through and my body compulsively trembles...again...like before...forgetting the distinction between an old tale and reality. it's all real to the body.
Yet,
it can move. the pain leaves. it's home is not my body. it leaves through my breath. it travels out the curve of my spine. it crawls out of my feet. it loses it's hold on my ribs. as I contract my thighs for this last asana, i reclaim totally, completely what was mine all along. my body. my home.
i reclaim each square inch through yoga every single day. i am. i am. i am.

You’re Just Fucking Wrong

Well… I don’t know what else to say…I’m all about giving people a voice and negotiating to consensus but the bottom line is sometimes they just aren’t right and at some point we need to be comfortable taking a stand for what we know IS right. I believe that one of the issue people who have […] #drjohnaking

Good Ideas

Don’t be afraid to do something you are not “qualified” to do. Amateurs built the ark, professionals built the Titanic. It’s ok to be just where I am in this journey. Occasionally, a good idea comes to me first. Usually, they only come after I have tried a lot of bad ideas. #drjohnaking

Trapped

Trapped Condemned by things I did not do Judged by actions I did not take Caged by feelings I do not want Held by words I did not say Reaping what was not sown Trapped  by Dr John A. King #drjohnaking

Sex is a conversation, are you taking?

Sex is a conversation. Have you talked to your lover today? Have you ever wondered what happens to a couple when they stop having sex? Some have suggested that the impact is not only emotional and relational but physical, everything from prostate problems to an increased risk of urinary tract infection. I heard of a […] #drjohnaking

Teenagers are the most susceptible to trafficking and being forced into the commercial sex trade. 😡We must get the word out to parents. Abuse, rape, assault and trafficking need to be part of the daily convo. Without talking about it, we remain in ignorance. Ignorance permits the hidden evil to live on. Do your part--Comment with 💡if you will continue to shine light on slavery!  #drjohnaking
