Wounds: A Poem about Healing

Wounds




Until you heal

You will continue to bleed

Those wounds remain open

Until you know what you need


Wounds bleed from within

Your life becomes stained

Through alcohol, drugs, and other vices

Leaving you feeling shamed


These wounds you did not create

Your brain subconsciously overcompensates

Until you get to a place where you understand

Your lower brain dominates


You are thrown off your rhythm

When your body dysregulates

Color, tap, listen to your favorite artist

So, your body self regulates


It may take time

For these wounds to heal

Your journey is your journey

As you learn how to take the wheel


Connect with those that bring you up

Creating a therapeutic web

Having a community stand with you

As your story needs to be said
