I will absorb the energy of these dark offenses; the poison, the pain, the betrayal, the shame, the hurt, the fury, the fear, the indifference.
I will allow those offenses, those dark pages of my story, their rightful place in my history.
I will build each offense their own tomb in my bones and marrow. Every last weighty moment lived, will have its own burial site and marker.
I will put away the widow's blacks and veil and wholly reconnect with the living, mindful of my many blessings and my need to bless.
I will remind myself daily of the importance of remaining curious and alive to reason and choice with complete focus of head, heart, body and soul.
I will enter into a new and untouched land ~ My own "State" of grace ~
And I will reign sovereign over my own life with soft step, wise eye, love and reverence.
