Whole

Witnessing

that which was once unbreakable

breaking  into pieces.

Disintegrating like dust

scattered into the universe

to haphazardly blow soft warnings

within the paths of those who have no inkling

of how quickly and without warning

the storms can come.

Venerating the pain for the lessons

which would have never been learned

in a lifetime spent chasing pleasure

without bearing witness to the

hidden side of the coin.

Gathering the slivers of light and benevolence

manifesting on the long road back.

Savouring the beauty and love

found in a child’s laughter or

the rhythmic crashing of the waves.

Renewal hiding in plain sight

for the lost ones blinded by the pain

with eyes closed in suffering.

Limitless room within

for the replenishing of what once was lost.

A wholeness of self.

Hope springs eternal.

    You have turned tragedy into triumph and become such a wise woman on the journey. Very beautiful, Shannon. ❤

    Sometimes we know we need to turn around and look at what has passed, because we must, but can’t muster the energy to turn, even knowing full well that it will advance us, and strengthen us, and renewal isn’t ever to be ruled out. Thanks for sharing.
