It is in all of us,
our Strength
our Resiliency
our ability to Overcome.

Sometimes we need help finding it.
Sometimes we need to learn to listen,
to ourselves, our feelings, our bodies.
Sometimes we need to learn to talk,
scream, yell, write, whisper.
Sometimes we need to
move, draw, create, play, sing.

It can take time.
It is usually hard work.
Once we do find it,
we call upon it,
and we move forward, onward,
sometimes sideways,
sometimes further down,
before eventually finding ourselves
emerging, surfacing, ascending…

Rising UP

I welcome you for whatever reason you are here.
It is hard to ask for help.
I honor that, I respect that
as I honor and respect you.
