Primordial scream ripped heart
Hole in belly sets you apart
Voices of wisdom do not work
Shameful alone no tearful smirk

How did you get here how to get back
Do you deserve feelings so black
What antidote for heartfelt remorse
How can you end a winter of loss

Body is listless soul so blue
Emptiness loneliness pervading you
No time to hide no time to fear
This has been brewing many a year

Where do you take your tragedy
How to rebuild your identity
Where are sages to help with pain
Where is shelter from the rain

Where is the outcome that serves
While quieting raw fragile nerves
Where to find solace after you’ve wept
Is there a map or tentative step

One says withdraw another engage
Listen for wisdom inside tears and rage
Sorry no answer to find outside
Place for direction voices inside

Time now to flower ahead a birth
From a dark hour new sense of worth
All is in cycles down to know up
Phoenix will rise filling your cup

Do you have unhealed pain?

What does your wisdom say about resolution and wholeness?
