Sometimes…

Sometimes when we see things in a new light,

we begin to see clearly,

or suddenly know what we need to do.

Changing or ending something

does not mean we have failed.

Sometimes it can be the most loving action

for all involved,

even though it might be judged by others

who do not understand.

Sometimes when we see things in a new light,

we come into our own.

We outgrow our ancestors

and shift the story-

from shadow to light.

Sometimes when we see things in a new light,

we feel like everything

falls apart and becomes ashes.

And then, suddenly,

we rise.

We become free.

We are healing.

We stretch our wings

like a Phoenix rising from the ashes.

New life is possible.

New beginnings are possible.

Out of the shadows and the brokenness

rises new life, new hope, new love…
