Waiting – Patience is Prayer

Sometimes you have to wait

in the dark

For what seems like forever


Certain no progress is being made,

not even a little growth

Nothing seems alive

You, least of all

It doesn’t even feel like waiting, truth be told,

Since waiting implies an end in sight —

and you haven’t seen one of those

in ages.

You’re sure you’ve been abandoned


It seems as though your own soul may have deserted you

But then one day

A day you didn’t think would come —

The smallest of cracks appears

Then the crack turns into an opening

Then the opening a breaking free.

Maybe it was the way the sun hit,

or how the rain fell

or the planets aligned

or maybe something deep within you simply knew: NOW.

But it’s not just that you’ve come back to life

You’re different.

The life within you feels humbler, since you know you know less now.

And more grounded, since your roots were growing deep all this time.

There was something happening, you understand now

something profound

in that slow and tedious germination.

It’s a miracle, isn’t it?

How even in the longest and most brutal of winters

thousands of seeds are plotting

a most magnificent spring.

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
