YOUR WISDOM

YOUR WISDOM

 

YOUR WISDOM

 

Your words stung me…

resonated deeply to the bone…

woke me up from a deep passive slumber…

shook my soul to its foundation.

 

But it was not what you said

that captured my attention.

It was your help to understand

what I didn't say to myself,

what I could neither hear nor see.

what I was not ready to

or to fragile to face. 

 

Up until now

I have not accurately seen with my eyes,

effectively listened with my ears,

sensitively felt with my hands

And honestly sensed with my heart.

 

Because of your wisdom,

I will recommence my journey of healing.

I won’t stop marching forward

to heal deeply imbedded trauma,

until fear no longer sabotages my life.

 

And for once,

my heart will no longer

be held captive by fear.

My mind won’t be constricted

by dissociated numbness,

both of which,

the most ubiquitous enemy of all.
