The Catalyst

You ignited my heart.
The dark warriors came up through my veins flowing wildly
Searching for answers, needing air to breathe.image

They want to be heard
Asking for a voice to speak and call out the pain of the past.

You ignited my heart.
Gave me the courage to love myself more deeply than I ever thought I could.

You ignited my heart.
It now loves and has compassion for those painful memories that accepted my hiding- masking . Accepted my defeat. Accepted my self loathing and pitying. It once handed me the razor blade, the pills, the gun.

You ignited my heart and reminded me that within I can be free.
I can confront those dark warriors and know, they are NOT ME.
