Stronger than I think

Lion in the Wind

Maybe you always were

Stronger than I think

I only know that the youngest one

Looks up to those who went before

Chasing them along a path of years

Wanting to heal any tears in the fabric

Which tore connection apart

But some wounds leave such gaping holes

They turn into abysses

In which our souls can get lost

Navigating the darkest spaces of complex emotions

And even more complex tangled


Flesh of one flesh we were

Then separated

Striving for ways to reconnect

And when the blows fell

And we bleed or were buried

Or failed to stand

Who is the one who bears the silent cost?

It can take us years

When we become lost

To find the way back home to the self again

That longed so much for a loving family

But maybe you weren’t as strong as you thought you were

Maybe in the end

It was only in opening up to your vulnerability

That you found out

How strong you really could be

"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.
