Healing Poem

Doesn’t mean being fixed
By someone else
Cutting out the bad parts and then being OK
With what remains

Healing is learning
That what is there
From the beginning
Silently waiting within
Is all that is needed
For good health

To know your truth and be healed
Clutter must be removed
Guilt no longer present
Societal expectations peeled away
And the inner soul allowed to speak

This voice requires stillness and silence
And trust
And respect
Before telling its secrets

Healing is attained
When we understand
Our gates of Hell
Are locked from within us
And the key
Is our inner voice
Waiting to be invited
To lead us out and into the light
