Like Honey #Poetry

I see passion in your eyes,

glimmering like golden honey,

Lit like lava // simmering-

in between the cracks of

the unforgiving mountains

that made you who you are,

Learning to make more

humble decisions-

Healing decades

of tired muscles locked //

in the fetal position-

Smoothing rigid scars-

to discover your truth,

Learning to listen within-

to the waking masterpiece

who has risen … that is you.
