Unleashed Fury

2014-07-13 09.33.46

And the fury of hell was unleashed by her

Nothing in her path was safe

Years of hurt welled up in her

The only place it could go was out

Out and through

Tearing buildings

And boards

And walls

And homes

The force was so great no man could have stopped her

No thought could have held her

No promise could have tamed her

She sought relief

She held it all back so long her own power within scared her too

She just let it go

And maybe she feels sorry for the devastation she caused

But she couldn’t help it

She couldn’t hold it

She couldn’t feel it

She just let go

Now she is beautiful again

She tries not think about it anymore

She is sorry that her own pain was more important than that of all others

She weeps a little

Her friends look different to her

Because they are

They could never

Will never

Be the same

She doesn’t make excuses

How could there possibly be one that could explain what happened

She owns it

Possibly puts back a little of what was taken

But knows deep down

That no one

No thing

Will ever be the same

 

Blessitude

Lorrie

Poem written 11/7/12

 

I chose to post these two poems together…this one – Unleashed Fury, and It’s Okay to Remember, because I recognized the connection between Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy and the storm that was brewing inside me. 

The poems were written several months apart during a very intense part of my emotional, and physical healing.  I know that I have had a major transformation in my healing for, although reading these poems evokes certain feelings, the distance is comforting.

I am so blessed and full of gratitude – BLESSITUDE!!!   I wish for you all to be able to weather the storms in your life.  It is a journey worth taking!!!

❤ Lorrie

  1. Sometimes, Lorrie, the pressure from within is so powerful, there is not other way then to release it. Just like Mother Nature, when the pressure builds, a storm is a result. As without, so within. When we stuff, we become “dis-eased”. Great poem and BLESS your for posting it. Love, Amy

    1. Amy…thank you so much!! I sometimes wonder about showing the darkness…there was much in my past. But without the darkness I would never have known the light. I am so grateful…and I know you understand. And your post today speaks nicely with mine today. Much love to you, Lorrie

  2. I think that when you have been victimized by someone, when someone has taken away your power, then there is bound to be anger, to express anger is an important part of the healing prosess. Because when we dont express anger it tends to turn inwards and become a depression or an eating dissorder or cutting, the anger that was supposed to be there to defend us, to fight for our protection, was never allowed to come up and do its job so it turns inward instead. When we express anger after a long period of holding it back or letting it turn inwards, it is extremely liberating, and some wil even say, completely necessary in order to heal. ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. You are a bright Angel and a soul to healing! Trini…everything you said is so beautiful. Yes, you have a full understanding of the pain that can completely render an individual helpless…that is until you reach some crisis…health…you are correct depression…or tragic life altering event. That is when there is a strong possibility of being able to connect to the healing source of spirit…your own spirit…love…unconditional love that has always been there…but you learned to not use it! I had much anger…and guilt. But I am a work in progress…and posting these poems at this time is good for me. Much love to you soulsister 🙂

  4. You have expressed the truth of what many of us feel, Lorrie, as have many of those who have already replied. I think as we are strengthened by the Spirit to release pain, anger and resentment, we have the capacity to be filled with love and light. Whatever we are filled with, we give away. It’s obvious you overflow with love and light.

    1. Hi Susan 🙂 You fill my heart with light and love and I am so grateful for your words. This is how it works!!! Yes…”whatever we are filled with, we give away” When I was in pain I delivered it as good as I got!! and I hated every minute of it…it was an energy that was magnified by the sheer volume of it. Changing that energy has been the single most important work of my life!! and yes…I can feel the love in my heart and that is what I want to give away!!! Ahhhhh…. so much better!
      Much love and many blessings to you!!!! ❤

  6. Hi Lorrie, Thanks for your courage to share your feelings and path. Yes, bottled emotions become a storm of destruction that can do more harm to us and others. Hopefully, we learn constructive ways to feel and express our emotions. I’m still a work in progress too. How wonderful that you are healing yourself and others by sharing your path. Many blessings, 🙂

  7. Hi Brad. Thank you for adding here. I wish we could all find our way with as little pain as possible…but I’m not sure that is the way that it works. I am grateful for the things I’ve learned…maybe not so happy to experience some of the actual events…but …you know what I mean! Much love to you in your own Journey Brad…I know you are working out some things right now and I want you to know that you encourage me! Thanks for being a great friend 🙂 ❤

  8. “She owns it” and she has owned up to it, not down, as far as I can see, Lorrie.
    Seen in the light of a new day, the shadowy relics of our dim recollections
    appear less fearful; even as they remain to be the truths of our past,
    they carry less weight, and thus become less burdensome.

    Humans are quite adept, when it comes to finding silver linings.
    Good to see you’re following that thread! 🙂 I wish you well. Keith ~
