Soul-Repair

The injury of a frayed
and tattered soul, repaired
by being seen, being heard
and loved.

Reminded and mirrored
that the truth of who
we are at our core
has always been there
it just needed acknowledgment
and tender loving care.

The pain and suffering
eased by a witness who
listens with respect
with belief, sadness, and anger
at the injustice of what had been.

Learning to trust that the
frayed and tattered soul
is safe, and its okay to mend.
To cease inserting that second arrow.

With compassion, tenderly nurture
your present and future self.
Connect and attach
begin to feel whole.

Breathe…rest in it as long as you can.
Let yourself be one.
Exhale, knowing that injuries heal
frayed edges become softer, and the light will begin to shine through.
