The Gentler Way

I found there was

a choice

in each moment.

I could choose

to follow the flow

of life,

co-creating with it,

or to move

in the other


And so I began

to choose

the gentler way.


A Gentler Me

For a while,

I looked to the

outer world for

something that would

offer an answer

or mend the whole

in my heart.

But this journey

had a way of

softening the healer

in me,

little by little —

until the purity

of her love

could no longer be

denied —

until there were

no more holes

in my heart

to be filled.

And life began

to reflect a truer,

gentler me.
