For Lady Sharon in Camelot…

For Lady Sharon in Camelot…

“Refuse to fall down.
If you cannot refuse to fall down,
refuse to stay down,
If you cannot refuse to stay down,
lift your heart toward heaven
and like a hungry beggar,
ask that it be filled
and it will be filled.
You may be pushed down.
You may be kept from rising.
But no one can keep you from lifting your heart
toward heaven –
only you.
It is in the middle of misery
that so much becomes clear.
The one who says nothing good
came of this
is not yet listening.”
–Clarissa Pinkola Estes

    Thou art so kind Lady Debra,

    My heart was so honoured to hear your words. A deep peace runs like a river through the words of this poem. May the words giveth comfort to all who read it. I thanketh you for introducing me to this wonderful writer Clarissa Pinkola Estes, who is touched with grace.

    May Blessings rest upon you and remember it does not matter where we go, as long as we ride together.

    With a Grateful Heart,

    Lady Sharon
    Scribe of The Knights of the Pain Table
