Shadows To The Light

When Pain Finds Healing

By Haytham TrueheartPublished 3 months ago 1 min read

Awareness begins to talk as the willingness to accept sits still and listens like a child cradled in the voice of their mother’s womb.

Acceptance looks for the shoulder of ownership as it seeks the hand of responsibility to stand.

Responsibility is without legs if compassion does not carry it, but forgiveness needs tissues too.

Courage is the man who welcomes his shadows to the light, and at the table of truth, integrity arrives.

His character strengthens as he commits to help his wounded heart walk better and guide his shadows to the light.
