The Longest and Shortest Path Ever Traveled

October 5 2016:


The path to love
the path to oneself
strewn with broken pieces
covered in darkness
showered with light
pieces put back together
discarding what no longer fits
like a sculptor releasing
the masterpiece buried in the rock.
Chisel, buff, shine
until one day she is
released from the confines
of the rock.
She is free to know
free to be
free to love and be loved
free to have and free to do
the path to love
the path to oneself
is the longest and
the shortest path
ever traveled. ~ Camilla Downs
