Words Are Magic


February 26, 2022


At times, some things will affect me very strongly and while my mind is trying to process the facts, the emotions in my soul need a place to escape to. I often find a relief in words.


I will share a poem I wrote few weeks ago after some devastating news. I had hard time focusing that day because my heart was overwhelmed with feelings of helplessness. When I get in that space of emotional turmoil, I found that words can heal and once written, they have the power to push the demons away.


Grief

What do you do when you feel like you died?

Your heart is beating

Your mind is running

Your blood is flowing

But your soul was ripped apart

And your dreams have died

You feel like the world has turned dark

You feel lost and sad

You feel broken and mad

You feel shipwrecked and alone

You feel empty and black

Breathe…

Take a breath and pause…

It’s ok to cry

It’s ok to wallow and feel down

It’s ok to sleep and not think

It’s ok…

Breathe…

Feel…

Don’t think…

Start looking around at new life

Start seeing the good, the hope, the love

Your soul never left

It just fell apart for a while

And now with the new dawn

Your soul is awake, shining bright

And with each and every day

Your soul will show you the way

Breathe.

Feel.

Hope.

Love.

Your soul shines bright.


I hope that you enjoyed this brief look into my sou.
