today...tomorrow...yesterday

After I ran today,
I walked..
and walked
and walked...

It was a time of quiet
and birds singing,
the breeze was blowing the leaves..
and my heart was throbbing.

I am overwhelmed
in moments
at the pain
that lingers
deep in the recess's
of my heart!
Its not on the surface
or accessible all of the time.
But, its there..
waiting for me to reach it..
touch it
and then let it go!

I discovered today
as I opened myself up
to feeling hurt
I often ignore..
that as I opened the wound
the hurt was purged
and the closure complete!

one wound
one scar
one walk
one mile
at a time....

My faith,
my father above,
my broken heart
and I...
hurting
healing
and slowly moving beyond!

  6. I went to a retreat once where we did a walking meditation focused on grief. Step by step, breath by breath, healing.
