one woman's journey to wholeness…

“Childhood Memories” Photo by Toni Roberts

it’s a given

that when one is staring

Death in the face

one is more than willing to

go there

   you know…

that place to which we

jus’ ain’t goin‘”

but here’s the

good news

we don’t have to wait until

   our own demise is imminent…

and one disease or other

is hitting us

upside the head

with a 2 x 4

in order to finally

go there…

you can go there now

in the

bloom of health

and be not

devastated

nor

destroyed

by remembered horrors

endured by the

   wounded child…

   who remains…

   huddled in pain…

in a dark and hidden corner

of your heart…
