Healing is a moment-to-moment experience. It's one reason we need time and space — to digest all that happens. Read these poems about healing and give yourself that gift of grace, of patience, of wonder, of thanks.
For writing to be healing, it must speak of and from the wound. Not because it's caged by the wound but because it wants to better understand the wound, to shed some light on it.
4 Poems about Healing
1. Life is always: and, both.
I’ve learned a whole lot more about the light
By being open to the darkness
Than by enclosing myself in light.
What we must realize, if we are to heal, is that darkness is a teacher of light.
2. Be a giver of what you need.
There is no sweeter way to heal than
3. Gifts of healing are packaged differently.
Healing is an honor,
Though perhaps one wrapped in darkness,
Like a star is.
“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.” — Mary Oliver
4. Separateness is a lie.
I walk the path,
Healing as I go,
Knowing I do not walk alone.
