I have learned a lot about myself
when I have done things in the light of anger.
I have learned about the Blame, guilt, and hurt that lived
beneath it, that had nothing to do with anyone but my own
reactions to my own expectations. I just never belted out,
so how would anyone else know, what I kept silent within me.
Most of the triggers I have, I know the buttons to push,
I know what it does, but what I didn't know
for the longest of time, is why I held that against others
rather than calling myself out, for holding myself a prisoner
to the broken record of my past.
"I believe our emotions give us keys,
to many locks that after enough frustrations,
we learn to forgive ourselves through self-love,
and the Pandora boxes within old hurts, reopen with new eyes,
and we see ourselves as we were, when those experiences happened,
with the wisdom we have already gathered...
Treasures reveal, we perceive opened,
a whirlwind of understanding clears the fog,
and the Blessed lesson is seen, for what it is...
We pick up the lesson, learn, and get back on track."
Everything can be built into stepping stones upon our path.
