Archive for freedom

So, this is what it feels like to me.

Recently I have made some amends to people I love.

The enormity of freedom that I experience now as a result is overwhelming.

Holding onto “righteous justifications” only pushed me deeper into a self-made hole.

I wish I could explain it deeper–I just don’t have the words.



Aligned with my conscious

I follow the path

Away from the vortex


Knowing immediately

The concept of Letting Go–

Automatically leaves

An opening for receiving


Momentary pride surfaces

But it fades,

As quickly as it came–

Pausing to feel

What the vacancy of resentment is like


Unbelievably freeing

Yet still waiting for the catch

I found you the same–

Only completely different


Soul amends for the broken heart

Swirling mental journey of our youth

Reconciling only through brokenness


At peace with the balance

Restored with humilty

Pardoxically aware

That control truly is an illusion.
