The Dawning Light ~ Alchemic Interlude

Among those who avail themselves of my offerings are those that have had, what they perceive to be, traumatic experiences. One cannot change what the past has brought, but one can construct a new reality, a transformation, an alchemic interlude, an intention ... and so these words in reflection... 

The Dawning Light 

the scars of abuse upon this mind
the echoes of taunts within this heart
the shadows dark upon this soul
momentary be their reign
momentary be I their prisoner
for within lies the power of resolve
for within lies the light of the Omnipresence
for within lies the liberation of spirit
the scars of abuse dissolve into understanding
the echoes of taunts resound with compassion
the shadows dark ascend to the dawning light
and I in the Willful Presence of BEING.
