The Mountain and the Sea

(written January 2023)

in the shadow of a mountain.

It has been an arduous climb.


to the bottom of the ocean many times.

Heartache and grief have taught me many lessons.


I am not afraid of heights or depths.

Let me swim in the sea, and let me climb the peaks.

I will prevail over every obstacle ahead of me,

no longer a prisoner of my past or a casualty of a war that did not belong to me.
