When the anger leaves, the disbelief fades

And my heart takes a deep breath and feels a new peace.

Inside I feel different, very different.

The shift in consciousness that I have longed for has finally taken hold.

I have learned through experience that I won’t die…

That this is not what will kill me and as a consequence I know 

I don’t have to be afraid, and I can accept that it will be what

It will be, or maybe not be at all… and that is ok.

Because it is so easy, so natural, so familiar

The anger has left, the disbelief has faded and unexpectedly

The peace has returned.

For this I am grateful.
