Turning against our tenderness

When we were young

We sought the soft

But often kind and loving available faces

Were turned away

So often we were told

Stop your crying

It didn’t hurt that much

You are just being

A bloody drama queen

But deep inside our body

We knew what hurt

And what went against the true needs, values and feelings of

Our deepest self

There are some things

We do not need to ‘just get over’

There are some wounds that run so deep

They will always leave permanent scars

The point being

How tenderly did we treat ourselves

In the midst of injury

And how often were we asked to deny the truth

And in so doing

Forced into abandoning ourselves?

Do not be led astray by those who have

Not one decent shred of

Care or feeling

Do your necessary grief work

And deep healing


Really when it comes down to it

You need nobody’s permission

To feel the pain that you do

"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.
