Dragon master

What if trauma

was  a dragon


Every traumatic event,

a single beast


Some small,

some larger than life.

All different: sharp, vicious,

hard, demanding,

breathtaking, freezing,

scorching, overwhelming...


Some might be chased away

others keep coming back to bite 


Their fire might forge you 

an armour

but know, that armours weigh you down


You can try slaying them,

but do you dare to risk 

injuring the ones you love

in the process?


Ignoring the screams

in your head

will not stop them

from wreaking havoc


You can hide safely 

in your secret garden,

but that will get you nowhere


Accept that they may carry wisdom

from the lessons learned


So when their scales scrape you

and remind you of your scars

...

be gentle with yourself!


Mastering dragons

takes skills, energy and focus


and it is no small task

to keep them

from sneaking up on you


As you walk your path

with this herd in your wake

keep your eyes

on what really matters: life!


and who knows:

if you conquer them long enough

they might get worn out

and choose to stay behind
