When anger leaves, disbelief fades
And my heart takes a deep breath and feels a new peace.
Inside I feel different, sad but different.
The shift in conscious that I have longed for has taken over my being.
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 can accept that it will be what
It will be, or maybe not be at all… and that either way, it is ok.
Anger has left,
Disbelief has faded and, unexpectedly, peace has returned.
For this I am grateful.
