Long Morning

27 May 2009

These children tell me every way but straight
what hurts and why. While well equipped for this
interpretive work, I tire easily; let down
my guard and them in the process; speak
words I can't take back no matter how I try.
No one told me I could not say, "Here"
and "This is so"; tie the loose ends off neatly,
uncomplicated by the circumstances we've created,
the hurts we cannot undo.

"Home is ever so far away in the palm of your hand, and how to get there it is of no use to tell you. But you will get there; you must get there; you have to get there. Everybody who is not at home, has to go home."
