We are heros


Those of us who struggle every day to come to terms with and heal from abandonment or other traumas are really the hidden heros in this life.  Everyday we work our way towards self love as we also work to reclaim lost energy from painful scripts which do not speak the truth and only end up re-enacting old lies upon us.   This part of the poem Heroes by Nikita Gill really speaks to this truth.

We have to tend

to our wounds

with water,

and love,

and the moon

and rekindle our fire.


We have to treat

our broken hearts

with kindness,

the kindness

we never received

from anyone else.


Because if we do not

choose ourselves,

if we simply stare

at our pain

and allow it to overcome us

then we lose ourselves forever.

Nikita Gill
