How Deep

How deep are the wounds that people carry.
How deep is the denial that blinds.

For some, it is better to stay in a dark cell.
For some, clinging to hope and faith is where they hide.

The wound does not heal where denial thrives.
The wound grows deeper with every twist and turn.

Healing follows with the first step of acknowledgement.
Healing follows with every step toward reality.

The Light brings illumination, but makes the dark seem darker.
The Light brings redemption, but often the journey feels longer.

Pity and enabling keeps one focused on the suffering.
Pity and enabling blocks Love and Grace from entering in.

How deep you want to strive and remain buried is up to you.
How deep you want to thrive and grow is your choice too.


Now it's your turn. What are you thinking?
