Coming Back to Life

Coming back to life

From the cracks in the ground

Where I had buried my awakened self.

Rising slowly from the ashes

Tending to my own weeping wounds

Rescuing the parts of me long lost

To the contingencies of human experience.

Learning to savor life

Armored, apprehensive, autonomous,

But with a soft and tender heart

Healing from the inside out.
