Hey guys I'm reading "The Courage to Heal" (for the 900th time) and was reminded of one of my favorite poems on the subject of emotional pain. Hope you also find it helpful... Own Your Own Pain by Patricia Roth Schwartz Own your own pain. Why not? It's yours. You've hawked it, pushed it, pimped it - now, Your body, breathing, life, guts, luster, sweetness, softness, pays the price. So own your own pain. Why not? You've eaten it for breakfast, Sung it to sleep at night, Rinsed it out in the basin, Watched it rise with the bread. So- take it, turn it, Let it slither, Into blood-beat, breast-bone, cell-song, skin. Give it a name. What you possess Cannot possess you.
