HE SHOWED THIS WILD WOMAN THE WAY
Poem By Jenn Prine
She tried doing it the world’s way — she really did.
She had the marriage.
She had the kids.
She had the house.
She had the dog.
She had the successful career.
And for what? To be dead inside?
At what cost? Her soul?
And why? Because the world told her it was so?
But then he came along.
He wasn’t in alignment with what the world saw as the perfect formula for a happy life.
He was different.
He never did what was expected.
People didn’t understand him.
And the true beauty of it is — he still doesn’t.
This is why he is magic.
He’s just her beautiful, magical autistic boy.
She did grieve at first.
But slowly over time all those egoic formulas and societal paradigms just fell away
And she finally got to see him in all his radiance
And he just came to life right before her eyes.
Through it all she was transformed from the inside out.
She set her entire life up in flames.
Nothing at all looks the same around her.
She’s surrounded by magic, beauty and light.
She absolutely went to hell but ascended to the heavens
In order to rise back up and be with her son.
She also does things her own way now.
She forges her own path through the wilderness
In search of her truth and her bliss.
She is a wild woman.
And he is the one that graciously came
into her life to show her the way…
