To let go and heal.

You will find when ready

that your hand opens freely

and loosens the grip

On preconceived reality

Dispelling pain, bitter-root and tears

That flow

from misunderstanding and pain

of always falling short

or being abandoned

or hurt

or beaten with fists, hands, words, looks like splintering daggers.

You will find

that healing

means releasing

what impedes your healing

and turning to the light –

But in your time,

if it be so.

No one can unfold a flower

No man can pry an unripened

Fruit from the skin

Seamlessly or


So, naturally, it will be let go

when it is time to go.

You will find that

the right words come

The right people will come

No longer listening to

repetitious lies

Jamming love down throats

In a pious disguise

You will find that when you are ready to…

Your pain flees quickly

to make room for brighter faces

in healthier spaces.

April is national poetry month and I realize I haven’t written much poetry this month. This poem is about healing and the process that we all must go through at different levels when things happen to us in life. I hope you enjoy it.

Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
Proverbs 16:24
