Today I promise to respond To my needs often placed on hold To tears if they choose to well up To the stories that must be told. Today I hold myself accountableContinue reading “Today’s Resolve”

Metamorphosis

Healing is meant to hurt, But no one tells us so It is the sting of metamorphosis The collapsing grief of letting go As our hearts begin to remember The bittersweet of our history When we see the whole perspective Of life, of loss, of synchronicity. It will not last forever, dear soul, Though atContinue reading “Metamorphosis”
