darkness into light

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

it feels dark today.
my mind has had a hard
time making sense of
the violence that took place
in boston yesterday.

ok, lets be honest.
the violence that seems
to happen with too
much frequency.

my thoughts are
seemingly unconnected,
but they keep bouncing
around in my mind.
so, maybe that means something.

it is easy in times
of darkness to lose faith,
to surrender to the darkness.

it is natural to shut down,
go numb, and close your heart
when the unthinkable happens.
(believe me i know)

anger is easy to embrace.
to want answers,
to want justice.
and accountability.

yes, that is part of the healing.
but it is more important
to keep the heart open.
to search for the light.

by opening up to life.
we continue to live
and it is through living
that we find healing and peace.

it is then that we
can truly come out
of the darkness so
that we can see
and experience the light.

sending lots of love light and peace to boston
