Blurgh…Talk to the Pain

When there are no words left
And you look at your pain
And you are at the point of being so very much annoyed with yourself
And you touch your pain and flinch away
And there is nowhere to go because it will just come along for the ride–weeee

Until one day you make a decision
And you open your arms
–Really wide
To make sure you can hold it all
And then you embrace your pain
You hold it tight
And hug it so much
That it doesn’t hurt anymore

And you embrace it so tight
Until it has become a part of who you are
Until it has become strength, resilience, wisdom, love, spirit, and light

Because that is the purpose of pain
The forging fire of growth
