song for the world weary

when your heavy bones
wish to sink to the depths
go now to the quiet place
where the world cannot
all of these things will pass.
all will dissolve someday
replaced only by light.
your decision lies 
in the dissolving.
will you cling bitterly
to sinking stones
or will you swim
flailing & gasping
to break the sunlit surface
& let that which does not serve you fall?
it is always our choice
yours and mine.

this is our power.

    Friends, I’ve started blogging again at a new address: Below is a sample post. Posts will still be dedicated to mental health, with more of a focus on spirituality. Spirituality and mindfulness has been essential to my healing and learning to cope day to day with anxiety and depression. I’m ready to share that part of myself with you all. Follow me at if you’re interested in sharing the journey. I miss you all and would love to get back in touch. Peace be with you, Jenna
