Letting Go

I once hid behind boulders in my brain
while emotional volcanoes
exploded past uncertainties
and fear cowered in chaos

I languished in guilt
used sadness as a guise for anger
while I grasped for understanding
mercy in the fog of mourning

My heart once close to stopping
beats stronger now
to feel, to be heard and felt
forgive and be forgiven

I sought my Higher Power
and found stillness for my soul
one day at a time on higher ground
the sanity of love—in letting go
