How I know that things always get better

I'm not going to tell you that it feels easy
Maybe this morning you woke up under a heap of stones
I won't tell you that it doesn't feel
thin or frail
I know how the ironwood can be used to intimidate the skeletal withstand
I know what it means
to dote over a handful of bread
I know how it is to wake up with a mouthful of tears

Just this moment doesn't erase a heated scar
Doesn't move across the sky like a collapsed bone--
Doesn't hold you in that place that waits,
like oxblood, red, in a river of stones

But I do know what it means to lift your eyes up
I do know what it's like to look for the cottonwood
to long for a single reprieve--
I can tell you about the sugar loaf
bruised by a handful of lemon
I can tell you how commodious pain
dipped behind the bloodbone
and came up reborn

See I'm not going to tell you that I received it easily
The most stubborn of thorns would be a witness in my side
But I will tell you
with hands full
with a clean heart-
that I do know what it's like to raise up a meal
of simple rice, yams a little bit of chicken & stew
to teary eyes that watched a memory
broken in the half moon of early morning
eyes that watched a ribbon of smoke dancing up from that plate of warm food
dancing like a woman alone on a Friday night;
Dig, hip-bone grind--lean into it again
and raise her arms to the sky

Hoping you have a lovely week!

Bee Well, Bee Loved, Bee Gorgeous
