Wonderful Wounds by Sean T. Blackwell
Sean wrote this today and gave me permission to post it on sm.com.
How beautiful is this? What a Thanksgiving this is...I am so loving it. Deb
Seemed to tame old hate with wisdom
There it was waiting to leave this realm
Like an old man checking his news everyday
The numbness of hurt from the heart grows
Distance between family and friend out of focus
Sick like a dog from being so caring and ugly
Time passing quickly more so than others
Stuck in a field of wonder not mystic nor joyous
Until one steaming day of endlessness
Leapt from agony not only alone but insane
And awake with much a pain than before
Family now in focus and sharply touched
Heartbeat relieving old stress and anger
New hunger and light of day when younger recalled
A person has given their life for mine a sacrifice of no limit
Happiness for the first since a boy in the dirt twinkling
Now the wounds are wonderful giving life and mindful of death
For with not a care or understanding of a smile again taken
Teaching the young arrogance against the old stubbornness fading
The future resonates with a song of rebirth and new faces
Loving on the line stepped up now to be bold
A breath away from beauty and joy and love
Sean T. Blackwell
Wandering through the dark passageway
where fog and cobwebs thickly lay
deep within the cavern of my soul
I see the writings etched upon my scroll
and begin to see the path that makes me whole
the fog is lifting – so reviving
I now sense the Phoenix Rising!

Beautifully written, Sean. Thank you for sharing
it with us. The title "Wonderful Wounds" so reminds
me of the symbolism of Chiron in our birth charts...
a sign denoting the place of our wounding and healing,
and recognizing the gift of the wound which brings
about the healing. What you have penned expresses
this very well.
Your poem is very brave, Sean. You go very deep.
Keep healing and writing and sharing.
i look forward to reading the next one.
Wishing you many blessings.
