My journey has at times been rather a ponderous hesitant walk.
I’ve staggered under burdens
of self imposed protective measures
Many parts of the road have been incredibly rough going.
Often times I’ve approached corners with hopeful expectancy only to be blind sided once again.
Treacherous valleys, difficult hills, swamps have sucked me in and nearly suffocated me.
My path this year led me over the blackest coldest mountain range…
I fought my way up those high peaks
I collapsed at the top panting with exhaustion
I could go no further
I was finally stopped
I let myself bleed
Let myself feel
I conquered the pain
I conquered the fears
I conquered the blackness
No longer will I run away from my dragons
I will fear them no more
I am embracing my dragons
They now work for me,
are part of me,
but no longer control me
The roles are reversed
And it feels
