“Before you can hear, much less follow, the voice of your soul, you have to win back your body. You have to go on a pilgrimage beneath the skin.”
―Meggan Watterson, Reveal
The Healing House
by Carmen H Gray
one day they may come back to you
have your prepared yourself anew?
have you gone on your own pilgrimage?
have you faced your very own umbrage?
for when these lessons return to know
the breadth and depth of your adagio
this is when all is revealed
the stalwart strength in your shield
the gentle bend that did not break
regardless of the commanding quake
you will then come to find
that in the midst of all that time
the stumbles and the thorns helped form
a compelling foundation to transform
your healing home inside of you
a precious place of highest value
it never stops until you end
the effort put forth to transcend
each new lesson to teach you more
that is what a healing house is for
