Lace Up Your Boots

Trauma  
pain and suffering
-of any kind  
has to be endured
-battled  
the only way out...Is through  
 
It doesnít matter how you get there  
as long as you remain focused  
on the light at the end.  
Believe in hope  
and let  it carry you through  
 
Most prefer a sturdy boat  
to float across the rapids
of emotions.  
Safely navigating through the currents.  
Taking in the sights,  
when the waters are calm.
Reading the messages  
graffitied upon the walls.  
 
Some prefer a rocketship.
Igniting the match
and blazing right through
wasting no time, taking no prisoners
 
I prefer to lace up my combat boots  
and go in on foot  
prepared for battle.  
Getting my hands dirty  
drudging through mud and muck
leaving no stone unturned,  
scavenging for every bit  
of wisdom along the way
And mending every crack  
doing my best to avoid  
catastrophic leaks.  
 
If youíre still standing at the base
too fearful to take the journey  
Youíll remain trapped in the past,  
drowning in the pain.  
But thatís no way to live  
 
Unfortunately,  
this is a journey  
one must travel alone.  
But be reassured,  
Life is waiting  
on the other side.  
Pacing,  
wondering where youíve been...
eager to welcome you back  
with a warm embrace.  
Grateful to have you home again.  
 
So come home...  
you were never meant to suffer
for that long  
alone
