Healed by Nature

I know that I am strong

Yet I am but nineteen

When the flying arrows of the internet pierced me without reason

When I only wanted to make a friend

But was greeted with slurs

And some youth’s shameless disregard for life instead

I was hurt, quietly, within

The next morning

I walked into a forest

And the gentle oak giants smiled at me for no reason

The sunlight sparkled on grass dewdrops as if just for me

The embrace nature gave me

In all it’s grandeur

In it’s beauty that asks for no recognition

A beauty so much more

Graceful than mankind’s hunger for attention

It healed me completely from within

As if the wound was filled

By a serene awakening

As if the boundless evergreen glade

The branches intersecting through dawn’s sky

Was made just for my eyes

The apple red rose that hides under a hedge

Was a gift planted just for me

I felt as if God

As if the universal force of life

That courses within us all

Was healing me anew

It was embracing me when humankind failed to

In a quietude that demanded nothing

And it gave me faith

That I’d find people to befriend

Who were still kind & true.
