Welcome to my first edition of #HealthyLivingThursdays, featuring a healing poem. A defining necessity in maintaining a healthy lifestyle, is to be emotionally, psychologically and spiritually healthy.
A key aspect of mental and emotional health, is the healing process. For me, one of the most powerful tools I have to use as a force in my healing process, is writing.
Most of my poems, came from a place grounded in the need or desire for healing. As I continue to heal and cultivate new ways to stay healthy, so as to deter the need for healing in the first place, I will continue to ‘write myself out of all of the wrong circles.’
As I do so, I will share with you, and pray we may grow together. I can’t wait! This is going to be an amazing adventure, we explore together.
Today’s healing poem, Emotional Rollercoaster, was previously published in April and written last Winter, in an in between period in my life. As I was preparing to transition into the spiritual being God ordained me to be, I was working diligently to make sense of where I had been, to brace where I was going.
I was on the brink of walking away from an extremely unhealthy relationship, with my one and true soul mate, and felt the most incredible sense of being lost and found at the same time. This is pre- California, post- being fired and arrested.
My life was all the way in shambles. And yet, those cracked and crumbled pieces built the solid foundation of my now, stronger than ever soul.
I wish you all, all the best of love, peace and healing, in your own journey to get off that emotional rollercoaster you’ve been riding.
Turmoil of the internal segmented instrument
Unrest of the intoxicated cerebellum
Distress in the debilitated mental state
Devastation diseased rampantly throughout the cancerous blood stream
Dismay dusted throughout the disarray of the human spirit
Unworthiness encamped into the cracks of the tortured soul
Broken dignity and pride soluble in the tears of the silenced
Terminated love wrapped in distorted goodbyes
Loose, decayed fragments of a once tight, fresh love phenomenon
Suffocated voices of care and desire choked by distrust and lies
Subconscious intentional reliance on pain and despair
Tumultuous emotional fluctuation respondent to the decimated meters of expectations
Incapacitating hope and faith gouged out by the ferocious hunger of regret
Speeding past the beauty of joy and happiness
All cars filled by the oh so bad
No room for the oh so good,
Too packed from hate, negativity, and ill intent
Can’t get off unless you jump off
You’ll fall flat on your face
Or if you’re lucky on your behind
It’ll probably hurt
Or maybe a whole lot
But you can’t get off unless you jump off
