The dust settles

Unmoving over mountains of hurt

And the sun did indeed rise as you knew it would

The war has ended, not with a peaceful solution, but the incessant battering has abated long enough for you to catch your breath and realize that the pain in your body has lodged itself because you allowed anger and fear to take up residence again

It edges out the love and the old feelings of anger and impatience have been creeping up on you

Yes.Β  Old habits are hard to break completely

There are ties that stay

Possibly a tiny string

But that energy mends quickly and suddenly there it is…the blood which gives it life is flowing freely and you wake up when the screaming you hear is coming from you

And you behaved exactly as he taught you to behave

And shame starts to shine from the depths of the bottomless hole where your soul used to be

Your son tries to console you and says, “But…that’s the person he made you.”

And I respond with, “But it’s not the person I MADE ME!”

And then Joel Osteen said, “You were listening to the wrong Father!”

And I said, “YES!”

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.

  1. Dear Lorrie, this is powerful stuff, it’s raw, honest, earnest (do people still use that word?). For me, it captured that sense of disturbance and then the awareness that I myself, will not allow myself to be disturbed by events around me. All I can do is remain compassionate and connect to the things that are real and that I love in my life. (i.e. YOU). With heaps of respect, Harlon


    1. Aw! Harlon…thank you πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ And you are also someone I love! And that is what we need to do. We have to put our energies where they will make the most positive influence. It is sometimes easier said than done and so very easy to go down the rabbit hole when nudged! I miss you πŸ˜‰ and I will be over to catch up with you. Many blessings β™‘
