I stopped being at the mercy of other healers when I began to heal myself.
There are things I want to do all the time, like … I have ambitions, I do, really … want to be there for people, but…
Still no matter how much I try to resist it / I wax nostalgic for a person who never existed
fuck you! / and now you want me to speak like a martyr? / well I am still alive and much smarter
this water offers resolve. / —Touches every part of my body / & does not flinch (Poem also available en español)
You there, you are Sacred & I am Sacred too. / Every one & Every being provides a purpose. / No purpose too small, for even our Beetle Brothers & Sisters bring us a Message.
I don't know what God meant to do by putting something so un-straight on top of a head so un-straight, but there are reasons they say this is unmanageable / Not because it is impossible to love, or to care for, but because it is impossible to subdue.
