Cold Rain

Standard

Cold rain falls upon my face

This January day

Bringing with it a chill to give

My skin.

I am shivering now

Yet

My bones burn within.

mind

Standard

her mind was quite broken you see.

for so long the road to healing has been most tedious.

she has had to learn to allow herself grace

and tenderness unapologetically

she has had to learn she does not need to justify this to

anyone

for even she was unaware that those wounds were too painful to touch

that even her skin was deeply bruised

with heart and mind

and this takes time

giving herself space to grow new strength

unspoken

and nurturing her own roots

and spirit

which ultimately remain

unbroken

love and tenderness for oneself grow freely when welcomed

and cared for unconditionally

Many Days

Standard

Many hours

Even music cannot fill the darkness.

So in silence I sit,

In silence

I am full.

Many days my heart is too heavy,

My sight barricades itself

I have not the strength to lift

My

Pen and place it to paper

Or my eyes to sunlight.

I sit in darkness.

In darkness I rest.

And I sink

Beyond my knees to earth.

Beyond touch of hand

Or restless thoughts

Where I lie.

For I do not even whisper there,

I do not not even cry.

Many Moons And Suns

Standard

Many moons

And suns have come and gone

Since you embarked on this journey.

Your feet light with

Anticipation
When you took your first steps

Now have become heavy

With

Impatience and doubt.

Remember your heart.

Remember your heart beating.

Remember the blood coursing through your veins.

Such life. Such beauty.

The moon and sun are still there with you and

They will not give up.

You will not give up.

Remember your heart.

Remember your heart beating,

And open your eyes.

Open them fully.

Breathe many breaths.

Open your eyes.

See.

Truly you know, if you wish,

You can fly.
