Recovery

that oft travelled path

hard to traverse and understand

healing scar tissue keeps tripping one up

on those ever-larger keloids

memories of the past

calm, heal, infuriate



foot sore, weary, burnt and blistered

searching for recovery, healing

crossing over to the other side

searching for another

I see peace

in my eyes

or another’s

Clarity

only when we acknowledge

that we are all mad

will it all make sense

and

mysteries, contradictions

will no longer be

……..

life stands still

clarity achieved
