The Journey of a Small Town Girl
A healing Vision
I wonder how it came to be
To find that in me.
Was it placed there at my birth
With some unknown awareness
Of the future road I would travel.
Was it born in me to help me
Endure the disappointments, the failures
To hold me when I could not hold myself
To protect me when I was not equipped
To protect myself.
Oh I wonder when I travel into the
Dark and deep of my life
Where did the vision come from
Surely not from simple me
A bag of bones fighting
To be restored
A profound inner commitment to peace and healing
Surely that is all I truly possessed
As I journey
Committed to cause no harm
Though I carried such hurt and anger.
There never was anyone to blame for my misfortunes
Just a knowing that I must go on
For my children
Then for me.
