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.
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
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
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
Your soul shines bright.
I hope that you enjoyed this brief look into my sou.
