Finding my way out…

Day 30. This prompt challenges you to write a poem in the form of a series of directions describing how a person should get to a particular place. 

This quote is very meaningful to me because it happened. I found people who have lead me out of the forest of sorrow..

“Deep grief sometimes is almost like a specific location, a coordinate on a map of time. When you are standing in that forest of sorrow, you cannot imagine that you could ever find your way to a better place. But if someone can assure you that they themselves have stood in that same place, and now have moved on, sometimes this will bring hope”
― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

I inhabited a place
where darkness thickens
the density of form
when grief was stricken.
and I rode the waves of unwanted fear,
covered the ground
with constant tears…

And you lead me out of the catacombs,
showed me the wonders
I had always known,
guided by the radiance
of unseen paths,
I became familiar with life’s contrasts!

the compass of faith was shown to me,
co-ordinates of grace
where I wanted to be,

and I lay in the foliage
looking up
at the skies,
open to the magic behind my eyes.
drinking in the light of honeyed-rays
I allowed sorrow
to slowly

and I gratefully returned
to Divine love,
to the miracle of hope
and the stirring of
a heart that is healed by kind intent,
to the motion of joy
that I re-invent…


I am an unknown introvert who desires to touch the world with a little bit of magic...
