Soulful Release

Purify, Confess, Repentance
every faith has there own method
it’s a cleansing of our soul
a release to lighten our burden

Develop Strong Regret
then resolve not to repeat
for a little while if it’s ingrained
forever if at all possible …

Apologise and Seek Forgiveness
make amends if at all possible
acknowledgment eases tension
leads to healing any involved 

Some write it out then burn it
or tie it to a rock to drown
some clean or bake intensely
we all know our own escape

Worry, Regret, shame or Blame
best abandoned for they hinder
the healing process, bleakly locks
one into a pity party spiral …

Learn, Grow and Move on
nurture your healthier aspects
if we wallow giving harm
energy it hampers our recovery

Listen, Love and Laugh
trust your inner seer
live life playfully with no fear
stay focused on those dear

  1. Beautiful flow with very important message Kate.
    I have experienced that reading positive writing of others really help and nurtur.
    Healing is not an instant thing but can be achieved with long lasting effects.

  2. Reading this is just like beginning my journey to healing…i can’t remember but i read it somewhere that when we want total healing we need to read and focus on positive pieces that nurtures and encourages love rather than resentment….and this is just exactly what this poem is all about…so full of positivity and a promise of hope..

  3. I’m with you here Kate, this is how much of society deals with children who have behavioural difficulties and it only makes them feel like they can’t ever do good. Other ways need to be found to help people grow and move on.
