Picking up the pieces . . .


We wallow in our pain

  let it sit awhile

  stir it, sift it

Without swallowing it.

We let it drip and drip into our space

Until the last drop has joined the place

Where wounds are mended.

Our spirit takes over

    bringing us peace and purpose.

 And our hearts begin to move forward.

Four more years of Bush and we may all be homeless, or ashes where the bomb went off. I have known a number of homeless people over the years. Most were homeless because they gave up. They quit fighting. It's a tough old world, and nobody ever promised us a rose garden. I grew up poor, and I am still fighting to survive after all these years. Nothing comes easy for me for some reason. I can't even afford to have my book reprinted. Anyway, I'm glad you have a positive outlook on things.

Wonderful poem, and wonderful is what you're doing to help the homeless, Laurie. Kudos to you!

Beautifully written. Yes, we have a very big homeless problem in New York City. Some homeless because they lost their jobs and homes.

And our hearts begin to move forward. Excellent words. I hope that through your books and words that people will open up their hearts to those less foruntate then themselves.

Awesome write.
