Deeply Me

I wrote this poem a few years ago…when I remembered who I am, and fearlessly embraced the changes that were happening to me and around me. I still forget who I am from time to time, as I pass through the circles of change; some repeating themselves until I understand their meaning and let go. It’s a very short poem…only 15 words…delivered to me from the Universe to remind me that I’m ‘Light and Free’…always.

I'm dancing
with destiny..

and free..

all that I am..

Wounded Healer

Iโ€™ve been thinking about emotional wounds…those we experience and those we cause in others. I’ve been looking at the physical scars on my body…some from small injuries; some from deep surgery. Physical wounds always fade with time, and the superficial ones disappear completely. Others…the deeper ones, never completely fade and will be with us for life. Maybe wounds to our soul are like that too. Maybe those very deep ones just have to be loved for what they areโ€ฆ in acceptance of the fact that the scars will be with us always.

I wrote this poem several years ago, prompted by the concept of the Wounded healer; a term used by psychologist Carl Jung to describe the use of our own wounds in the healing of others.

It's only
in the giving
of a grateful
fractured heart..

that joy will come from living
and sorrows can depart..

for you're
a wounded healer
whose essence
will transcend..

restoring and renewing
before this journey's end.
