These lines are from a poem my talented daughter, Holly Hatch , wrote just today:
I have only been truly alive in my adult being for 5 years
- and I’m still learning -
still trying to remember that most days,
the pain I feel
isn’t mine at all.
It’s the energy that circles our heads
-it’s the uncertainty- of the state of the world
It’s the sorrow
the sunset or the sunrise that we pray
until we can soak the changing colors into our being
and let it fuel us with a knowing
that there is something bigger than ‘I.’
