ethics (day 20)

turtleemerging.jpg

i want to tell you about the time i was good,
but i was good because they were bad.

i want to tell you about the time i survived,
but i survived because they were abusive.

i want to tell you about the time i won,
but i won because they lost.

i want to tell you about the time i tripped,
but i did that all by myself
and i just don’t feel like going
solo.

    i think you were good and you survived and you won because you are you.
    we all trip sometimes, and like i said the other day, you get back up, scraped, but laughing. and you are not solo, you are loved and there’s just all kinds of people waiting to pick you up when you fall,

    i want to tell you about the time i showed up
    but i am distracted by the beauty of your words.

    i want to tell you about the time i was moved
    but i am distracted by the beauty of your heart.

    i want to tell you about the inspiration in my soul
    but you already know, you put it there.

Pull up a chair why don't you, and let's talk . . .
