Released from Others She Thrives

All she has to do is live her truth Clairaudient certainly for she sees spirits. She also has clairvoyance, clairsentience, claircognizance, Her family is discouraging, disappointed, angry. First they try to convince her that what she sees is not there. That her feelings are wrong. Telling her that her “knowing without knowing how she knows” is an infraction against God. But how can it be? Didn’t He create me? She argues. They poke fun of her, laugh at her, jeer her. They are her family, her parents, her siblings. The ones she wanted to trust the most. She shuts down over time. Pretends to accept their religion over her spirituality Their truth over her truth Their ideals over her absolute knowing. When she grows up she wanders off and finds other like-minded souls. They uplift her, nurture her, love her. Released by the others, she thrives.

You do a great job conveying the heartbreak that comes from families whose love is conditional. Nice poem. :)

Thank you Georgette. I had to wander off into the wilderness and make my own family, and I suppose it comes across pretty clearly sometimes.
