A good recovery

a picture of the poem, written on a typewriter.

A good recovery should
make us less vulnerable to
future risks.
It’s not a “step”.
nor an item on a list.
It is time. It is a process.
Filled with empathy and care
Filled with space, empty
and at times, silent.
Allowing for anger, grief,
denial, deflection, bitterness,
depression.
Giving way to acceptance, embrace,
new knowledge, ingenuity, planning,
hope.
healing.
