How It Feels
I know how it feels to have lost,
As if the life I know has ended.
Moving through a vortex,
Not really living, just existing.
I know how it feels to hurt deep inside,
that intense pain in your heart.
As if a vital piece is missing,
and it feels impossible to move; to go on.
And yet I know it is from this pain,
That the stronger me will emerge.
And the truer meaning of my life will be known.

I have these inner dialogues with myself sometimes when I am hurting, depressed or going through some unpleasant strong emotions. Recently with my mom’s illness and weakening, some of these darker moods have shown up again to be heard. And so the inner dialogue continues as I move through them. For me, I know I must lean into these times of shadow, in order to move back out into the light.
