It is only love that will save us from the wreckage

That will bring warmth once again

To a fire that burned itself out here

Deep inside our wounded hearts

Over the all the darkest years of our remorse


It is only love that can provide the much needed rescue for a soul

That feels itself defeated

Never realising that a victory is often inauthentic

If not borne from the shattered bones of despair

Ground down to uncover the essence of all that went wrong

And in the understanding of the wrong turnings we take

And the poor bargains we make

Can we find the love to see them as


Not chosen by any soul

But bequeathed to it instead

In order that this soul

Could remodel all the fear and pain and loathing and the dread

And fashion from within it

A deeper awakening?


For love is only ever truly lost if we refuse to love ourselves

Even in our most wounded and broken and mistaken of places

For it is only through the loving of this brokenness

And through the recognition of its deepest complexities

That we find the energy for rebirth

For the salvation of all that was stolen, broken, shattered

Or seemed to be lost

In the process of our unconscious living

That left us burdened under the weight of

Such a tremendous cost

"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.
