Trauma Recovery – Shame Resilience – Self-Compassion – Coping With Chronic Pain

The world is blaring
I can’t hear myself
Inside me, the poems gather
They press
They tug
They boil
And they burn

My mind is racing
I can’t make sense
Around me, people make it work
They stress
They lug
They toil
And they yearn

Comparison pays a visit
I can’t let it win
Within me, I find worth
I caress
I hug
I uncoil
And I learn

  1. I needed this. Thanks. I’ve been struggling with feeling not worthy of sharing because my creations just aren’t nearly as wonderful as other people. I need to remind myself that creativity is for sharing. The power is in the sharing. Thank you for reminding me.

      (((hugs))) my dear Cyn. I relate to everything you’re saying here. Comparison is such a flawed lens to look through, though, because we’re only seeing other peoples’ “done” and comparing it to our entire process. We can’t see their process, or know their utter truth. Besides, only you have your voice, friend. And that’s the voice I want to hear. <3

      Thank you. I’ve had such a brain fog lately, and it’s frustrating to sit to write, and not find words waiting in the right order or reason. I just keep writing, though, knowing that if I keep the tap on, something good is bound to find it’s way out eventually. <3

      They definitely don’t lead anywhere good or transformative! They lead to shame for me. And that’s why I keep fighting.
