I Will Move Through

I will move through the stagnant days

When it feels as if I am wandering without destination

Searching aimlessly for the next landmark

Exhausted, aching, but determined.

I will walk through the dark night of self-reflection

Even when the moon is hiding its familiar face in the sky

And I feel the reawakening of the past surround me

Afraid, but never deterred.

I will allow myself to feel what I have long repressed

Expecting waves of guilt, sorrow, and regret to crash

Knowing that the only way through is to accept

Surrendering to what is, at last.
