Tropical storms moving across the water
Leaves drop from trees as the summer turns to fall
Something is brewing under the surface
Winds are shifting…
Mental energy buzzing
Chatter fills my head
All my thoughts elude me
as I try to grasp for one
What am I thinking?
Where am I going?
My emotions are in a tug of war…
Feels like the ground is too soft to hold me
As I take just one step forward
I lift my head up high and smile,
but then I fall back…
Memories rush in
Like I can’t breathe…
Where am I?
How did I get to this place?
Is life passing me by
while I am frozen in time?
I long for an escape
Yet I know it won’t help
I sit with the pain
Take a few deep breaths
Feel the sun on my face
My inner voice whispers out
Reality sets in…
Gratitude replaces self-pity
I start to feel the transformation,
giving myself permission
to be at peace
as the circle of life comes into focus now
and moves me forward on my personal journey…
Soon, beautiful blossoms will rise from the debris.
