Pain, I make a home for you



When I open my heart to welcome you in

I say to myself and to my soul

I want to know who you are and what you really feel

I will not ignore your cries any more

I will not invalidate or undermine your truth

Hard as it is at times


When I say to you


There is a place for you here

You turn from a restless frustrated angry thing

And you lay your heavy burden at my feet

Like a distressed animal I comfort you

And tend your wounds

With my healing acceptance

I say to you there is love here for you

And I will not longer make of you

A vagabond

A lost wanderer

A stranger

Pain when I give you a place

And allow you to show your face

You make me a richer deeper truer human than I was

And in time you surrender your hold

For in being heard and loved

You can be let go

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.
