Alone but not Lonely: A Healer’s Journey. {Poem}

A Healer's Journey

A Healer’s Journey.

This is why

So many healers are alone


Because of the danger of attraction

Because: physician, heal thyself

Because what is in me can help millions

Or, bleed out all at once

In the merciless hands of a narcissist

Because it would be nice to be loved

By another

As I love


But it’s not the priority

I am the priority

Caring for me

Healing me

Holding me

Protecting me

Growing me

Stoke the fire

Fan the flames

Tend my garden

Because what is within me

Is more precious than gold

And it is what the world needs

And to squander it needlessly

On a single, selfish individual

Is sacrilege
