Unpaved Ways

Dusks turn deeper
Nights of no moon
Traipsing in once again
Out come old scars
Ebullitions tear open
With memories she felt
Concealed dim.
With no leaders to guide
She must do what they won’t
All safety taken in stride
She must now pave a way
To protect without strife
Saving young souls
Of her life.

In dusk’s stillness
Rebirth of perspective,
Her soul unfolds
Amidst scars and forgiveness
To unbosom light.
With reverence for
Necessity of both voices
United and dissonant,
She embraces
Passage into
Metamorphosis
With acceptance and love.
