Descension to ascension
Descending into the darkness, the valley I promised to cross comes into view. Losing my false sense of self is terrifying and peaceful at the same time. I realize that my sense of self worth is a comfort to my ego but not my soul.
The torrents of wind circle my ankles and climb up higher than heaven as they release the dam I have been building for a lifetime and begin to fill me with emptiness.
I watch as the magenta sky moves across the horizon, a fire I’ve only just begun to try to understand.
The time is right, I know this in my heart. My mind has failed, my emotions distraught, but my faith endures.
I am ready because I know that everything happens for a reason, that only God knows.
