Standing on the Edge

Standing on the edge,
stepping back,
standing on the edge

Questioning …
is this me …
who is this me,
stepping forward

Stepping back
waiting for my wings …
for flight

Standing on the edge
is this really me …
what is required of me

Standing on the edge
who am I …
is this really me,
or some fantasy of me

Standing on the edge

I am a Poetry Therapist | a Psychotherapist | a Creative Therapist | and a published author of poems. I work creatively with adults and children offering new ways to share thoughts and feelings to support healing and growth. My work is to support emotional health and wellbeing, by providing safe spaces for conversation which allow for reflection, exploration, and challenge, in working towards change in people’s lives. If the space is right, we might create poetry together. I didn’t know back then that my journey into writing began in my early teenage years with a diary, a padlock, and a key—a place and space to hold the secrets of my life. Over time, my writing has taken many shapes and forms. In my work as a poetry therapist, I support the voice of others to bring words once unspoken to become spoken, and to be seen, heard, and validated. My own writing emerges in the darkest days and nights as a source of healing. Words emerge from deep places within and scatter form across the page, touched by lived experiences of the heart, of life and living, grief and loss, love and joy. I have learned that my writing is not just for my own healing but for others too, to touch the deepest part of others’ lives for healing. No longer are my words locked behind a padlock and key, instead, I entrust them to others to take from them what is needed in order to grow.

2 CONVERSATIONS

  1. This poem is lovely, Diane, and something I believe many of us can identify with at some point in our lives. I’ve often felt like I was standing on the edge, only to step back and forward again. Each time something different is revealed to me. Life is a constant ebb and flow, back and forth, up and down. You capture it quite eloquently.

    • Dear Laura
      Thank you for your reflections … I am pleased it has resonated with you. Yes, it is true of the constant ebb, back and forth. In my current phase of life I find myself seeking for my wings again, for the courage to step forward into a new path.
      I wish you well in your continued stepping forward
      Diane
