True North

I simply needed training

to build the muscles

and the stamina

to lift the anchor

weighing me down,

drowning me in the endless

tsunami of trauma,

despair, shame,  and sorrow

abandonment brings.

 

Now, toward the light,

strength forged from courage,

up up up.

Leaving the dark past to stagnate

at the bottom

of the century.

The power of forgiveness

fills the billowy sails

and finally,

lets me forge ahead.
