I Plunge Into It's Depths

Grief swells within me, 
And I plunge into it's depths, 
Glad for the release, 
Surprised by the intensity. 
The long forgotten past swirls in my body, 
As my tears let go of what no longer is.

A trigger to something deeper,
A moment of solace, 
Self-expression at it's most raw. 
I allow the feelings, 
And I allow myself,

Because I know that to heal, 
I need to feel,

To break free, 
I need to break open, 

To learn, 
I need to allow, 

And like a butterfly emerging from it's cocoon, 
I know that this chaos leads to transformation, 
Leads to a beauty so powerful, 
It can fly.
