When pain

is constant

World filled with




Fear most

loss of fuel


is protest

Let yourself


Cry and unplug

lay and indulge

love and be loved

When heartache

is recognized

Power of voice


Warrior can

march on


not broken

Dear Dogra, 

This is beautiful. Thank you for sharing and yes we all need self care so we can let loose and really energize. It's not easy for us to make changes in the world when we are always stressed and up tight. Thank you for reminding us that we need to take care of ourselves. 

Thank you for sharing

So true, so beautifully written. Your transforming pain into poetry is a gift of a reminder to take good care of ourselves.
