Healing shows up for us, dear soul,
Without hidden costs or fine print
Despite our stubborn inner resistance
Even when it feels as if there is no escape
From our self-imposed prisons.
Healing finds us in our destitute places
Requiring only an open and willing heart
To take the first step down an unknown path
To walk away from doors long closed
To make the difficult, pivotal decisions
To follow our deepest intuitions.
We do not need to leap out into oblivion
Completing metamorphosis to earn the next clue,
We only need to listen carefully to our souls
And with hope, take the first step forward
No matter how illogical
No matter the timing
No matter what we must let go
Toward what will allow us to truly grow.
