She knelt in the snow and clasped her hands to her
Her fragile voice began to talk to anyone
Who might be listening;
“Why am i so slow,
Why does my heart overflow with love,
Yet my body shy from all?”
In the the peace in the air between her breathes
She felt their reply.
“You suffered great trauma child.
You denied yourself validation of pain.
You rejected love of others
And refused to honor yourself.
Fear became imbedded in your cells.
They are rebuilding themselves
And are reemerging as light.
Holy light of love.
Accept the light. Accept the love.
Lift your gaze to meet yourself in
All your grace.

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 cared for unconditionally
The light you cast
Has found things hidden in my
With utmost patience you coaxed them out
And to my surprise,
At the silent grace
Within your soul.
Do not let the veil of silence
For it is not weakness
It hides behind.
You carry a strength beyond
