Recovering the Shadows of Self

Tonight you took a walk with me

into the darkness.

In the darkness we discovered insights, 

needs, a practice, and seeds

of self-compassion.

It is here that you will recover parts of yourself

that have been calling for your love

and your light.

These pieces of you hold the keys to your freedom

and the fulfillment of your purpose in this life.

Approach with loving-kindness

and trust will soon follow.

From there, hand in hand,

you will walk each other Home.
