Raising Healers

This house we built
With no bad touches
And full bellies,
Lights that are on
Water that is running:
May not be enough.

A warm embrace,
Nourishing meals together,
Lights intended for bedtime stories,
Cozy bubble baths:
a good start.

My own wellness,
Food consciousness,
Light that intentionally casts shadows
Weeping alone in the tub:
Getting closer.

Honoring our pain
Speaking our truths despite adversity
among each other or “out there”,
Seeking our individual gifts to serve the collective:
We’ve arrived.
