#Poem at night: I run

I have answered the question that poem poses by now :-). I wrote that poem in March 2011 at the start of a new round of healing from my past traumatic experiences. With my now husband I felt for the first time safe but unfortunately my soul demanded some attention from then on.

When I stopped running, the pain caught up with me. All the pain I had bottled up for years. I am still running, but there are times when I stop and have a look at the child I was, and I mourn what I have lost and celebrate the resourcefulness that has brought me through.

People deal differently with traumatic experiences. Some just get one with it, some suffer all their lives. I might be a little bit of both. But writing poetry and creating something with my experiences have helped to heal

I run

I
run
and
run
and
run
and
run

away

from the pain!

What will happen

when I stop?
