LINE IN THE SAND

Power, authority, dignity
The truth of us
Usurped in youth
By conscious or unconscious action
Becomes occluded
Covered by shame, guilt, rage, unworthiness
Which embeds itself in the delicate human design
Seemingly impossible to remove
But wait!

There comes a time when we must decide
That we are no longer defined by the insults
That happened in the past
The line in the sand, the ’no more’ place within

And when we do that we are called to our inner authority
And it is challenged by the world, by us, by others
And we may struggle to find who we are
Beyond the embedded self protective mechanism
But there is freedom in all of us
And nothing that we really are vanishes forever
And we have more power than we realize

Spirituality doesn’t do this for us
Other people can’t do this for us
We must find the line ourselves
And stand upon it
Over and over again if need be
With a kind of resolve
That makes it clear to the universe
We are done being defined by all that happened.
