Walking Through the Fire

She could
...until she couldn't anymore

And contrary to popular belief
This wasn't a step backwards
But a victory

On the surface she had come undone
Not many could hold the space for her

For she had taken a deep dive into herself
Where she could begin to feel again
The things that been numbed out 
And forgotten
To keep her safe
For so long

And from this place 
Of feeling
Of seeing
Of being
Of expressing

The things she use to do, be, tolerate
Were no longer possible

And so
She wore this
I CAN'T
As a badge of honour

For the Warrior that she was
Who was brave enough
To be in the front lines

Of those who choose to walk into the fire
Of feeling
And being
Again
