Instead of

rebandaging 

each wound,

I performed

open heart

surgery 

and faced every

fear

I had been

running from.

The wound was the

portal

that led to every

answer

I had been seeking.

  1. Hey Rachel,
    A very powerful and moving poem expressed with courage and conviction. I was put in mind of the notion,’the way out of fear is the way in to gratitude.’ Or perhaps more profound still, the words taken from Revelations 3:8, line 176 and 177…
    β€˜Behold, I have set before thee an open door,
    And no one is able to shut it,’
    Thank you for sharing inspiring words encouraging sentiment.
    Namaste πŸ™‚

      1. You are most welcome Rachel, it’s always a pleasure to read your words. I enjoy your poetry very much…it’s raw, honest, even brutal in places, and yet every crafted word is touched with the gentleness of your heart and the kindness in your soul. I wish I had your sensitivity and tenderness.
        I am left inspired to better my own verse and reach a little higher or a little deeper within. Thank you.
        I hope you will enjoy a wonderful weekend. Take care in all ways always.
        Namaste ❀
