and only the uprooted comprehend.

“May Light always surround you;
Hope kindle and rebound you.
May your Hurts turn to Healing;
Your Heart embrace Feeling.
May Wounds become Wisdom;
Every Kindness a Prism.
May Laughter infect you;
Your Passion resurrect you.
May Goodness inspire
your Deepest Desires.
Through all that you Reach For,
May your arms Never Tire.”
― D. Simone

Martin Luther King, Jr.
she decided it was time
to let go and move forward
so she packed only the best
of everything she had been through:
the fragrance of burnt hope,
that fine nectar distilled from her fears
and a precious collection of each sweet bruise etched on her soul
and off she went
arm in arm with the universe.
