Taking myself out of the equation grants permission to exude compassion


Remnants of granules taken off the shelf to encourage healing

Philosophical debates softened by a wounded , yet educated heart

Piecing together the reason through surrender,

I cling to the knowledge that was derived from the experienced


Not tangled up in opinion

Submitting to the power that is greater than my feelings

Uninhibited by relative pursuers, I can be me

Recoiling from the torture that was at one time a daily occurence


Synonymous with elation–

But balanced with a steady wisdom from a trusted source

The gift of simplicity is gently restored


Flashback to the slavery of self

Conceptualization of insanity


Being fragile isn’t such a bad thing–

When I allow a shift in perspective

Shallow just means it is finally coming to the surface…


I allow my foundation to change slowly–

And without force–

To produce a faith that is not easily swayed by negativity


Collections of truth to diminish fear–

Yet only possible through active participation

I sway back towards the darkness to convince myself of why I chose another road

It creates an instant reminder of the root of my decision


Regaining strength from the process of perceived failure

Thankful for the permission to make mistakes.
