Love Heals

Love heals It awakens our understanding Brings us back to our authenticity Reminds us of our treasured worth As it mends our wounds with kindness Until our hearts rejuvenate. Love is not painful It is not an imbalance of power An impulsive anger receptacle A vulnerable heart against a brick wall Unkind words and projectedContinue reading “Love Heals”

Seasonal Synchronicities

A poem inspired by a dark, cold, cloudy day and attempting to find the silver lining with two not-so-happy teenagers. All while decorating for the holidays. It must have been Polar Opposites Day and I just didn’t realize. 😀 When we lose our HOPE, let us remind one another That there is warmth and loveContinue reading “Seasonal Synchronicities”

Alleviation

I have carried pain like invisible stones Sometimes aware of its existence Often experienced as a referred aching A heaviness felt on a soul level The weight of a thousand injustices An accumulation of my perceived failures Crumbled dreams piled up like debris Harbored still because I have never learned How to release a painContinue reading “Alleviation”

I could have closed my eyes to hope Shutting out the warmth of light Choosing suffering over regeneration Abandoning growth for perpetual night. I could have embraced the role of cynic Convinced there is tooContinue reading “A Heart Led”

Where there is a welcomed return Of joy after a long stretch of survivalContinue reading “Where There Is”

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 joyContinue reading “Healing Found Me”

Here and Now

There is no need to see the horizon ahead Because here and now, there is hope Love lifting our tired shoulders Even as the way before us disintegrates. There is no need to know what will be Because here, in this wondrous moment, There is peace settling into our souls Even as tomorrow begins toContinue reading “Here and Now”

A Balm for the Lonely of Heart

To the ones who rise up from gravity with heaviness in their chest Souls fraying at the edges while consistently giving their best, To the ones who care for others with shoulders stooped in pain Hiding worlds of grief, pushing aside the rising shame, To the ones who know within themselves they are sound andContinue reading “A Balm for the Lonely of Heart”
