Poem of the Week 1/26/18

write the story.

push

your hands

into the dirtiest

part of yourself.

take the

rot & decay

& turn it into

nourishment & life

water it

& sing to it

& show it

sunlight.

grow a beautiful garden

from your aching

& teacher yourself

how to thrive from it.

write your story.

-the sign you’ve been waiting for.
