From the Shadows

More than faceless demons, harsh yesterday-words can lurk in the shadows of the mind.  They pierce through, stabbing our best memories with pain.

We are here to heal, not harm. 
We are here to love, not hate. 
We are here to create, not destroy.

We cannot heal by wounding.
We heal through Forgiveness, Understanding, Compassion, Authenticity.
We heal through LOVE.

Faces wearing yellow-orangey-reds
For passionate threads
Of loving hearts.

Green, blue, indigo, 
Colors that overflow
With service and caring.

Violet, made last 
Heals the past,
If the truth be told,
A true pot of gold.
