Set Free



Dark, nothingness, self destruction.

Help, love, acceptance.

Hope, confidence, wholeness.

Celebration! LIFE! Freedom!



Prompt from my friends at  Write on Edge. Great challenge to write a story in a tweet. 140 characters.

trauma then healing. The light at the end of the tunnel can be seen from this.

Oh wow. You really captured a lifetime here.

I'll just go ahead and "wow" again.

Such a poetic expression of anguish and healing! There are so many entry points of relate-ability here.

Was the use of 12 descriptors intended? I don't know what the 12 steps are in the 12 step program, but I imagine this may be the emotional equivalents of the journey.

What a great transition! I love what you did with this!

juliemoore said...

No Nicole the descriptors are not a part of a program that I know of but the way I have experienced healing from trauma myself.

Thanks to everyone for your encouraging comments! It really does keep a writer/blogger going to hear from you.

Lance I love Helene. My favorite of all! She's got more inner strength than we can see... I think. Actually the last entry was awesome.
