When you've lost belief ~

This piece

was born

out of the memory of
a heart's cry


When my beliefs
about who I was
and how I would make my way

in this life

were challenged.

My heart's cry was this:
"I don't believe in myself anymore."
This is what I heard
in the quiet stillness of my spirit . . .

Little by little
it has been changing me
from the inside out
ever since.
The change
is a relief.
The change
is good.

{Whew.  Deep breath of stepping out with my heart here in this one.}
