Balanced leaps : A journey from the heart to the mind

Fate took an unexpected turn
Many times I broke down
Not knowing when the worst would end

Illness made me felt so alone
Drained by the many ‘why me’ questions
Exhausted by the turmoil in my mind
In finding the meaning of acceptance

I found solace in silence
Shunning away family and friends
Befriending paper and canvas
Conversing by written words and splashes of paint

Writing and painting my emotions
Slowly washed away my pain
From the heart that was cut open
And the sadness and fear under my skin

Little by little I felt alive again
Braving myself for the present
And the future that is uncertain
Balanced leaps created champion
Beyond flesh and bones.

(2020 reflection)
