In her own words: Resilience

News | May 30, 2019

Resilience

When hope feels buried far too deep

And the rain lashes the soil of your heart, where you planted that minuscule seed, do not despair

The elements do not destroy

They are instruments of divine sunshine

That courses down into the soil of your veins

Even though you are blinded by the rain

The seed is there even here.

Trust in the process and soon, the green shoot will uncurl itself

From the seed and poke its head through the soil.

You will be astonished to see that tiny speck of green

And it will be as though an angel had visited the garden of your heart.

– Sarah Masterson

    Sarah your poem carefully, step by gentle step guided me through the process when hope does feel buried so very deep, to the moment when that divine sunshine shines through. How appropriate the final line and thought to be left with, ‘ And it will be as though an angel had visited the garden of your heart.’ A poem of sure hope.
