Art Words: Holding It Together

2013-10-30-holdingittogetherbydanielleighton.jpg

Pieces of heart.
Disconnection from Self.
The shadow that surrounds you:
What you know you could be, what you fear you might be.

Caught up in a past you're afraid to look at.
Hold it, grab it, try to keep it contained.
But it MUST be released. It will NOT be contained. It REFUSES to stay silent.
It will destroy you, it will destroy people, it will destroy nations.
It denies truth and it takes no responsibility.

Souls are shattered, bones are shattered, lives are lost, you are lost.
But look up above. Look at that shadow. Embrace it, be with it, commune with it.
Find yourself.
Look anew upon the world. Look deep within and let your Self be seen.
It is magnificent.
