Getting Unstuck

In the tangled web caught
Like a fly in the spider’s trap
I struggle to release myself
The more I fight
The more I knot
I could wait forever
For someone to come
And cut me loose
But this job is not for another
It is mine to do
Only I can save myself
Work through these threads
Cutting one by one
With scissors of discovery
Sharpened with processing
All of my experiences
That have snared me up
In this complex mess
Bluntness of suppression
Lessons left ignored
Will never free me
From the tethers that bind

    This part resonated with me so deeply.
    Such a great piece Debbie! 💜
