Finding the right poem can be the difference between taking steps toward clarity and healing versus staying mired in confusion and pain. Finding the right poem can help save us from living the wrong story. The right poem provides breadcrumbs of deep sustenance leading us back to our place of personal agency and strength. Finding the right poem is a goosebump delivery system. Suddenly our story is being spoken with more clarity and understanding than we imagined possible. Finding the right poem can be the difference between having our challenges overwhelm us and expanding our perceptions and boundaries so whatever challenges we face are floating in a much bigger, more spacious context. Of course, nothing can replace human contact and the listening ear of a compassionate friend or loved one. However, sometimes we need the compassion and listening of a story, poem, or narrative to help us along our path.
