Uriah Hamilton

You And I Will Suffer

You and I
Will suffer through terrible abuse
To our inner child,
Our spiritual psyche, our real self
If we fail to find release
From our own negative perceptions,
Unless we truly desire to escape from emotional prisons
Of self judgments, unrelenting
Critical eye of condemnation,
Corrupted by estimations of ourselves
Based on unrealistic societal standards.

We learn generous forgiveness for those
Who violate us but never learn
To forgive ourselves and be healed
Of self-violation.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
