Healing Inside Out

Make the commitment to heal
Vow to take care of yourself
through thick and thin

especially through the thin

Take candlelit baths on Fridays
to wash away the week’s stress

Dance in the kitchen
every other midnight
and every full moon

Tiptoe through grasses at the beach
Make eye contact with the gulls
Tell them about your day

Listen to the creatures
sharing your backyard
crickets, robins, crows, bees, children

Read the pages of your old journals
Identify with the protagonist

and remember
this is only a story
and you are the author

with the power to say how it ends
