I am open now, my heart is once more;
I can feel again, like I used to before
The fear and pain had closed me, this time it was no more;
This time was different, a journey of sorts
My feelings were just flowing like never before;
Now I am open again, this time much more
I will not close off again for I choose to have love,
Now I know what to do when things get really tough
I have to keep on fighting, To keep the feeling flowing
Whilst continuing on the path, to where I was going,
This is the journey, the jouney of love & life
The natural ups & downs, the transformations we must seek,
For this is where the heart is; not in closing off & feeling weak
The journey can be hard sometimes, sometimes harder than we know,
We want to run away and hide from all that hurts our soul
But this is far more painful, for then you do not know,
What you are missing out on when you journey with the flow.
This is one of the first poems I wrote, when I first started writing at the beginning of this year; literally on New Years Day( It wasn’t planned that way of course, so quiet odd:). Anyhow It took a lot of pain for me to go through to get to this place and I was left with this gift of being able to allow my thoughts to flow in writing, of which I’m immensely grateful for.
I’m thankful also for any readers too, sharing is a blessing as it adds more purpose to writing and I also hope I can inspire some of you too. Writing is a beautiful way of letting go and sharing and I feel blessed to have learnt that this year.
Thank you for reading,
