Healing Found Me

Healing found me with my back turned

Unassumingly seeping in through my unsettled feet

While I stared with sunken eyes at a future lost

Already determined that the hourglass of my life

Had reached its final clinging grains of sand.

I was hurting, dear soul, so very misaligned,

Believing I was exempt from experiencing joy

Grieving, breaking, sick, disintegrating

Unaware that goodness is what we all deserve.

Healing caught me completely offguard,

But in it, my soul reawakened slowly and steadily

Until pain became the catalyst of regeneration

Hope took its place as the steady ground beneath my feet

Suffering became a necessary stepping stone

Leading to the wondrous beauty of today.
