scribbled on a scrap of paper


diving into the depths...
do i fight or
will i surrender?

are you leading me
in my dreams?
will i awaken
to an ongoing nightmare

or shall peace
finally flow & wash
over me
with new, abundant
life?

Kayce... beautiful poetry born from a woman who knows the richness of life (suffering, aching, hoping...) I'm taking your poem and digesting it for this day. It is pointing me to compassion towards myself (then others.) Thanks for writing it!
