Rising up...

I fell to the floor
Begging to the world to help me find peace.
I cried, pleaded, shouted.
Nothing seemed to help

For awhile I stayed in that position.
Huddled on the floor
Feeling pain in every inch of my body.

I started to notice the sun shining
It came slowly, casting a light through my darkness
Every so gently it got brighter and I was able to see things a little more clearly.

I rose to my knees.
Instead of begging and pleading I began to give thanks
I started to notice the beauty around me,
I felt the earth, the breeze, the sun. 
Nature surrounded me
Nature healed me.

I put my palms out,
As if to welcome the new things coming way.
A smile rose on my face and I embraced all the adventures I would soon take

On my knees I stood tall,
Proud of who I was.
Amazed at what I had been through
And grateful to be here right now, in this moment.

Rising up from the darkness
Rising up from the despair
Standing tall in who I am
Rising up to meet who I am meant to be.

"If you cannot find the truth where you are, where else do you expect to find it?"

Sitting on a plane
Sadness washing over me
Writing my thoughts away in the darkness
Not even stopping to turn on the light
Not wanting to shed all of this in the brightness

Music in my ears
My thoughts coming out through my fingertips
Tears welling up in my eyes

The stranger next to me catches my attention
Let's me know it is ok to turn on the light
I am not sure I am ready for that, not sure I ever will be

We begin talking
I begin to not feel so alone up here in the sky
Two strangers coming together
Traveling alone, yet coming together.

The sun is my guide...

The sun is shining and the air is washing a light breeze over me.  
I smile
Whoever thought I would be here?

Before I was filled with so many harsh emotions.
I had gone through an incredible storm,
and it has just begun to calm down.

The sun is smiling as if to say...
You are ok, and You are where you need to be.
Embrace this moment.

I look around, taking it all in.
The leaves on the trees, the clouds in the sky, 
The feel of the hot sun on my skin.

All that surrounds me is healing me.
Enveloping me in a swirl of love and strength.
Refueling my soul for whatever lies ahead.  

The sun is my guide.
She holds me gently,
and has lead me to this safe haven.
