Today is the day I came alive.
After spending months in the dark, I finally reached the sunlight.
It hurt like hell,
my own internal nightmare.
Burdened by my own stories,
I lay frozen in the ground.
Then an opening.
A welcoming “You’re okay.”
Some of Mother Earth’s nutrients found a way.
Sprinkle me with Love.
Roots, connections, growing deeper.
A sense of strength, allowing me to grow.
Painful still, expanding nearly always is.
The final push, past the rocky layer.
I thought it would be there forever, holding me back.
And there I was.
Here I am.
Into who I was always meant to be.
For this year at least.
