A Poem: We Heal


i think it's beautiful 
how it works

when we're broken
and can't find a way 
to put ourselves back together

when something shattered us beyond
our own capability of understanding
and we don't even know who we are anymore

when we don't know which road to take
to make everything okay again
or even if if we'll ever be okay at all

and somehow
we rise out of the depths
of our own grief

of our own poisoned minds
that whisper
deceptive words into our ears

the broken fragments of our souls
piece back together

our lips form smiles again
hope finds a place in our hearts

and it's a miracle in itself
how we're able to move past 
trauma and heartbreak

we'll never forget any of it
our pain will be cemented 
in a chapter of the story of our lives

but we'll move on from it
begin a new chapter

we're not completely okay yet
but we're getting there

we're healing 

-Jolly
