Together We Will Dance In The Sun

When we hear I’m sorry, and we release each other from needless pain
I’ll help you color in your tattered soul with the colors of the rainbow.

Together we’ll run through the fields of flowers that we dreamed of when we shivered in the nights.

We’ll risk making a wish, and imagine that we break the chains
reject the monikers, and run into the sunlight
dive into the ocean waves, and laugh out loud.

We’ll forgive ourselves for the pain and suffering that we saw
and that we endured.

We’ll understand that being an object, a tool, a creature
is words that they said and that they are lies.

Then you and I will understand that we are real people.
Made out of the same star stuff as all the other people in the world.
With skin, and a heart, and a soul.

If we can learn to trust each other
then we can let go of the skeleton hands that try to pull us down.
The ghosts that visit our sleep
will dissipate and we can close our eyes, and exhale before sleep.

Although we may carry the scars we will be one, whole, harmonious, safe.

I don’t know how long it will take.
I don’t know how to trust you and have you trust me.
But I’m committed to figuring it out.
The faces of evil have not won.

I want to live in the light, blinders off, whole and peaceful.
You get to have the same thing.

And one day when we trust each other, and the rain has stopped
together we will dance in the sun.

  1. Thank you. I had written this a few days ago and it took me this long to actually take the chance to publish it. Im really trying to find that compassion for myself and it is definitely a work in progress. I feel like I have it worked out cognitively most of the time…but that inner-child…well I definitely have a ways to go. I appreciate your support. ❤️❤️

  2. Thank you Gina. You are so very, very perceptive my friend. This is written for my inner-child, so that is about as deep as I can go. Another example of how connected you and I can be. Lights across the world for each other. ❤️


  3. your words always touch me, but this one seems more deeply than others. Trust is one of the hardest things to honestly give and receive. You have such a forgiving and beautiful soul Alexis, your light shines every time

  4. Thank you so much! I love (and totally) agree with the reminder to be gentle with ourselves and have faith. Just makes me even breathe a bit deeper reading that. Have a good weekend! ❤️


  5. Excellent. Extraordinary and Outstanding.

    We must remember to be gentle with ourselves, forgive ourselves and have faith both in God and ourselves. Truly God does answer prayers. The Lord brings you out of what seems like an impossible situation to bring you into Blessings.
