People are often over whelmed with feelings of loss and heartache when
a relationship is over. Strong emotion remains even when it is evident
the relationship is toxic. Holding On represents the conflict between the
author’s logical mind and her emotional heart.
Healing is a time of self-reflection and an opportunity to examine
oneself and the relationship. The process can yield insight and result
in personal growth. Freedom is the realization that valuing the self
means saying ‘no’ to an unhealthy relationship.
Swans frequently swim in pairs and harmoniously glide across the
surface of water. The poem, Swans, is a metaphor for healthy relationships.
Healing from the past is complete and it is time to welcome
future relationships with hope, happiness and love
