Innocent animal

A long time ago

You were so kind

You gave me an undeniable sign

That you knew I was innocent

I truly wish I knew then too

Because sadly now I see far too many years have passed

With me beating myself up

Now it seems there are amends to make

Mostly to myself

There were deep wounds and defcits too

That I could not find the way to

Because justification and ignorance

Covered them over

So that in the end, my vision was blurred

But in truth

The feelings pouring out of my deeper self

Never lied

Always gave me proof

Of what occurred

And how it hurt

Why do we shame people

For being human, real and vulnerable?

Is it that we too long ago denied

The rambunctious lively animal inside

That contained the most vibrant and in tune

Part of us?

Now I will no longer continue

To side

With that lie

For I see the many ways

We try to shut the animal down

And yet it will never consent to fully die

Because it is at root

What contains the primal best of us

Even if a wild and tender part

So deeply in need

Of our spiritual wisdom

Human intelligence

And kindness

"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. Beautiful poem ❤️Yes, we so often treat the most real and true part of ourselves the worst. Largely by not even seeing its existence! And yet sweet dogs can often see the true us so clearly.
