Journey to Your Deepest Self

Another Way

She didn’t know there was another way
Another lover she could have
The hatred she knew as her friend
Used it to keep her alive
Used it to feel alive
She didn’t know another way

She didn’t know love wanted her
She’d been rejected so long ago
Rejection knocking the wind out of her
Gasping for breath that didn’t come
She imploded wishing it would all end
She didn’t know another way

She yearned to believe that it could be different
Terrified to open to another reenactment
Guarded against the pain she nursed along
Not knowing it was her choice
Not noticing the change
Included her if she chose
To open to another way

She’s getting braver
Willing to know herself and to learn
Willing to know she’s done the best she could
Willing to risk it all
For something different to be born
Something worth living for
Something that brings waves of blessed relief
Calming, soothing, healing all the places that were hurting
She’s realizing that it is her choice
To open to another way

    Thank you Betty I am gifting this to a friend of mine for her birthday!

  2. I just found you but I love you too! I shared this with my 16 year old niece because she’s feeling and living this in this moment and I did not want her to feel alone on the journey.
