If this community is a tree,
we are roots, and bark, and trunk,
with limbs, and leaves and blossoms.
Yes, you and them,
him and her,
he and she,
each a part of this beautiful tree.
Written in 2011. Publishing today as a exercise in radical candor. I encourage anyone dealing with loss — share, talk, reach out to others. It’s in sharing our lives we realize we are not alone.
There are tears in my eyes,
yet I’m too afraid to cry.
as they well up, I put
my mind against them.
I cross my strong arms,
and build a wall.
