What if all this pain is sending you a message?

Perhaps you have spent a lifetime

learning the type of love that confines you

so the universe can teach you the difference


the things that wilt your leaves with poison


the soil that roots you

the nutrients that water you

the air that supports your breath

and the light that bursts forth your flower.


when you are entrusted with the latter,

can you welcome the gifts you’re given?
