The past that held her captive and lingered deep in her soul washes away through the warmth of the sun
The green envy of desire and needs is softened
The redness of pain that engulfs her heart is comforted by the rays of gleaming light that flows over her . . .
The spirit of love ensues and captures the wrath of fear that fires of bitterness have encased her in for years.
Pain has held her like a chain so tight wrapped around her neck and wrists—keeping her bound and captive.
The wretchedness of hatred that lingers within her has made her old and stolen the beauty that once was hers.
Her soul writhed in deep despair longs to be set free from the torture the past has given her.
The thick iron shield she’s worn melts, and the solitude of darkness is lifted.
Bitterness turns to love
Pain turns to Joy
And death turns to life.
