I want to run away sometimes…

Thinking it will be easier this way…

But the pain and the tears follow…

And pretending they don’t exist…

Allows the memories to remain…

Long past their stay….

Life is pain…

Life is heartbreak…

But escaping….

Doesn’t heal the traumas…

Numbing won’t make the triggers stop…

So I lean in…

I listen…

I feel every uncomfortable feeling…

Until…

The hurt starts to fade…

And the past no longer haunts me…

It’s easy to hide…

To run…

But it takes courage to let go…

Release the brokenness…

Embrace love again…
