Quietly you hid your tears

Behind a smile

Learning long ago

Not to express sadness


For what good could honesty do

In a world where

Pain or grief is fearsome

Or betrayed

By all that everyone else hides


Or runs so very far away from

In fear

Long ago you learned

Not to mention your suffering

To a soul

You never hoped again

What it might be to know

The closeness of an open arm

Or a trusting heart

To lean into

So that now

When you tumble

Will they ever understand

What led to such a fall

The scaffolding could just not hold it

In place any more

The façade you learned so very long ago

To hide behind

"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.
