Honouring your fragments

Mosaic Woman

There may be days weeks months or years

When all of hope will seem to be gone

And you will find your self

Knee deep in the broken shards

Of your lost or never fully put together life

How easy for me

Who is sitting calmly here

In a world bereft of such pain

To say you are insane

Or lack the will to go on

And how can I say whether or not

You will one day find the way

To arise and resemble again

No my friend

This I cannot do

As my heart is neither privy or wise to

The agony you endure

Nor knows the way to address

Deeper pain and real experiences

You may have lost the way to

And yet what I can do

Is speak as the one who spent years inside this place

And found a way back out again

And that is why I say

Please don’t give up

Reach out for help

Do not swallow down your pain

If you must

Then scream it out

Keep seeking for the ones who know and understand

How much it hurts

To be broken into fragments

And feel you will never be compete or whole again

And please listen when they say

This may not be the end

Just place of a painful transition

That leads your soul upon

A healing journey

Through which you learn to honour

All your fragments

Finding a way to accept

The broken open truth of you

"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.

  1. “Keep seeking for the ones who know and understand, how it hurts to be broken into fragments”. A healing journey to learn to appreciate and understand the truth of you is a wonderful way to see it. Beautifully written  ♥

  2. Yes! As someone who has also gone through one horrible dark night of the soul.. I can see and hold space for someone going through it. Saying “you’ll get over it” really does not help them at that time. You are not them, you don’t know their feelings. But often it is indeed a transition and a cocoon phase!
