Finding Freedom- a poem about healing

I am hoping this poem will resonate with someone! This one just came to me yesterday.

August 9, 2007 070_2

What is it that weighs me down like an anchor at the bottom of the sea.
I am shackled by the darkness. Is it


Holding onto what I should look like, think and feel?

If I let go will I drown in my awareness or swim to a place where freedom lies?

Free of doubts
Free of pain
Free of comparisons

Will I drown in the storm or be lifted up to a place where I can be me? Where I can simply BE?

Freedom comes when I take a breath and rise up to a place of healing.

Letting go of my shackles, I do not know the place where the crystal blue water hits the glistening sand.

But I know that transformation awaits when I graciously, fearlessly, and with great faith, open my heart and surrender to the tides of water that we call life.

  1. Kellie, it took me many years to get to the point where I am able to accept myself just the way I am and feel free to be myself. This poem expressed those feelings beautifully. Thank you for your honesty and for sharing this.
