The Reckoning

I followed my career past all points
of endurance until my body’s
signals turned to
screams
and then shut down.

The Almighty Dollar disappeared
along with happiness.
I lurked in the cobwebs
of angst and poverty
in pain
split in two.

The healing path finally
brings me to this meadow
of witch-intuition
and body awareness
feelings to
prioritize
and resonate.

I follow my heart
and so
I respect the briar patch,
no more thrusting through.
I’m water flowing
whole and clean.

My body’s infinitesimally
slow repair
illuminating the beliefs
that hurled me over
that precipice
finally broken,
and I can choose.

I am woman,
the masculine-led race
competition
abandoning
morals and ethics
in the sheer gleeful pursuit
of wealth
makes me sick.

Written for the #OctPoWriMo Day 28 prompt: Split in two, and inspired by prioritize, cobweb, angst, charge, and meadow.
