“Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.” – Maya Angelou
When your heart has been broken
More times than you can count
And you’ve valiantly attempted
To put the pieces back together
Only to find them break apart again…
It’s hard to trust
Hard to let go
Difficult to believe..
Then Love presents itself
It comes to you in surprising ways
In unexpected places
And unlikely people
Standing by gently
Until you notice
And become aware….
But the fear remains
How can I trust love?
Will my fragile heart survive?
Do I have the courage
To love once more
And the strength to
Let go if I was called to?
My heart answered these questions
Telling me it would not just survive
But thrive in the presence of love.
So I took the first tentative steps
Trusting, loving and just being.
And Love brought passion, courage
And the strength to stand up
For what I believe in
To question with authenticity
Systems and values.
Love propels me to fight against injustice
And those who have made false Gods of themselves.
Letting go over and over and over again as if she was doing reps at the gym, she grew that muscle called ‘love’. – Terri St Cloud
