Let Myself Remember

Mostly I move forward
Walk gently
Live open
Without fear

Despite all
That I
Have been through

But on this day
I stop

I let myself remember
All of it
Every painful detail

On this day

I allow myself
To feel
The full depth
Of what
I lived through

I do this
To honor
To show my pain
Well deserved

I do this
Because I survived
The unthinkable

I did that

I made it

And while I’m
Not one
To sit and dwell

This day
Is sacred

Set aside

To let myself
The pain

A difficult practice
Perfected in solitude

That also
Reminds me clearly

Of my strength
