Alignment: A Poem

Solstice alignment in passage

I had two arms, two legs, a chin, and elbows back then,

Yet they seemed unconnected to my mind;

As though I was not the power cord for my limbs or

My beliefs.

Today I feel more in alignment,

Though I know there are still twist-ties of self-confidence and

Doubt to overcome.

The twists today are my own doing

And positivity grows along my spine like mossy hope,

Keeping me moving, breathing, and


For happier moments and further alignment.

    I love the image you’ve chosen for this. Your words kind of remind me of a trip to the chiropractor – reconnecting parts of me that have gone numb because of a misalignment. 🙂

    Christy you come through loud and clear through your beautiful poetry. You are deserving of everything good that is waiting for you, believe it will happen quicker than you can imagine. Believe in yourself and everything else will fall into place.

    What a hope-filled poem! You recognize the hurt and misalignment of the past without it tempering the success or hampering your goals of the future. Very, very well done, Christy.
    PS I had no idea this did not post yesterday when I left it…Ugh.

    Yes we all of us need to align and understand we can at times all feel disjointed and unconnected
    When we feel connected to that Inner Spirit, we then gain that confidence as we see our way forward with hope and less doubt in ourselves..
    A wonderful insightful poem Christy
    Thank you
