Poetry Contest

write a poem based on the song and also on trauma

RUNAHILD is one of my favorite artists as she makes such beautifully unique music and songs. I can not begin to describe it nor would I ever be finished in describing it if I would start it. Originally from France, now living in Western/Northern Norway. Her latest song Wounded healer is about recovering from trauma. As she has been working on some of her own personal trauma on her journey

She and her partner Gustav Holberg also have joined projects and look at the picture of how they live,[ superb or super fab for me!!!!lol]


lyrics
Wounded Healer

As I hold space for my darkness
For my wounds and my scars
I withhold within
Hidden in my shadow
All the pain, all the sorrow
Never leaving me alone
Haunting me, haunting me...
From deep within

As I journey in my inner world
In a sea of emotions
I summon the spirit of my ancestors
I see in your eyes
All the pain, all the sorrow
You've carried within
All the darkness haunting you, haunting me
Your fate has woven mine
Leaving a print on my soul
Your wounds became mine
Within me, we are one
As I heal, I heal you
And I breathe life within

Holding Still

Feeling darkness
my historic lore
resting in my bones
trauma keeps score

Smothering the light
disarming my belief
perpetual mourning
no relief

Haunting visions
innocence didnít last
silent invasions
confronting my past

And fractured by
secrets unspoken
harrowing memories
but never broken

In resilience
I shall rise
as I am more
than unheard cries

Finding solace
from within me
self-forgiveness
will set me free

Fault not mine
I see now Iím grown
the shame I carried
not for me to own

No longer masking
all I am feeling
holding still
as I am healing
