Sit Awhile

I took the courage and asked...

Sit awhile with me and share

Look into my face and see me

Know my deepest thoughts

From time spent alongside me

This bolt hole of freedom inspires

The road to recovery and peace

Stabilising the rocky pathway

From bygone flames that cursed

That blamed and inflamed the past

Present and future at each turn

Failing me on a level of grandeur

Far outweighing my strength

This time spared for unravelling

The threads of my soul has

Taken me to new chambers

Pointing me out of dark recesses

Fighting my way to fresh direction

A revitalised verse of chapters

Planted like new seeds, previously

Dimmed and unknown to me

Released the shackles that chained

My limbs preventing movement

Towards the grain of another possibility

I have come to know a new me

One of truth and honesty

Accepting fears and laying them to sleep

I found another way through

Sharing and daring to unlock the code

Into my very soul, allowing it time and

Acceptance, to feel its feet and move

Forward with fortitude and definitive

Purpose to new found rooms with

Character and humility, stepping

Out and walking with me, by my side

Testing the waters to feel their

Currant; washing me clean from

Grime which has drained away

Into the ground beneath my feet

To know myself once more

In a different light to yesterday
