Breaking down walls…

“The most powerful moments of our lives happen when we string together the small flickers of light created by courage, compassion, and connection and see them shine in the darkness of our struggles.”
― Brené Brown, Daring Greatly

sinkholes of despair

I almost lost my words in sinkholes of despair,
unhinged by memories, of a melancholy glare.

The music had faded,
the world was opaque,
from tragedy’s tales,
I found no escape.

I was on the cusp of owning my story
breaking down walls,
striding towards glory…..

When enlivened with courage
I inhaled
living breath.
I extinguished the grip
of fixation
and death.

And I spoke out my blessings in syllables of light,
and bravery chanted,
restoring my sight…..
