Unraveled but still standing,
Off-kilter but determined,
We pull ourselves from the depths
Like warriors with one last breath,
Truth illuminating our shadowed minds
With both the sting and the promise of one more day.
We can no longer remain stagnant
Now that we see, now that we know
No avoiding realities in broad daylight
Now that our souls have kept the score.
Dear soul, what will we find when we climb
Out of the mire of our heartbreak?
What path will present itself to us
When we surrender to what we have ignored?
There is liberation in no longer avoiding
What our hearts have always known.
