Kyra Shaughnessy


when the darkness beckons

know that

you are only being called

to do the work

of undoing

the tightened cords of learning

that have for so long

held the beauty of your inner light

bound to the wounds of a past self

whose shadow only longs

to be cut loose

so you may emerge 

once more

from the cavern of transformation

& be fully present

to life’s endless,
