Growth or Safety

What a question

Safety

in sadness, pain,

stifling my joy

to deny happiness

or

Growth

while incorporating

my inner sadness and pain

to turn it into joy

and embrace happiness.

Mind blown.

In acknowledging my

secret, wicked, need

for pain I decided

to manifest it thusly:

By expanding my wrist

infinity arrow tattoo

because

The arrow must be pulled back to fly forward to infinity.

The chain is open so I can break it.

The heart reminds me to let go of the arrow and love myself so I will soar.

Lisa Long Preisler

My permanent reminder

that I am worthy

to live

to break my chains

to love myself, the person G-d created

to be exuberant

rise above the pain

and soar!

I choose growth.

XO Lisa
