Tripping Over Roots

July 12, 2015

Sometimes you trip over roots
when you are walking the path of grief.

Roots from your family:
Family messages about how to grieve right.

Roots from your culture:
Cultural messages about how to grieve right.

Roots from your past:
Old losses saying hello again.

Watch for them. Step over them.

Pause and feel
what needs to be felt.
Remember what needs
to be remembered.

Bend down and bless that root.
Be grateful for your ability to
notice and regain your balance.

Then keep moving forward.

Keep on moving forward your way,
because this particular path is
yours and yours only.
