Let Love In


I know sorrow

I know misery

I know suffering

I know self torment

I know abuse

I know isolation

I know terror

I still carry trauma

I still work at healing

I still see my wounds

I still act in ways I regret

I still scream when no one is looking

I still face the roughest edges of my psyche

I still ditch being responsible here and there

What is different

I pray

I write

I cry

I speak

I meditate

I serve

I stand still

I ask for help

I share with others

I let it all the way down

I stop believing my own lies

I stop believing nothing will change

I stop believing I have no authority

I stop believing there’s no hope

I stop believing that I am unlovable I stop believing that I am not enough I stop believing that I won’t succeed

I stop believing the stories that rutted me to the past

I’m ready to let love in

I’m ready to let love cleanse me

I’m ready to let love renew me

I’m ready to let love hold me
