A Poem for Survivors

A Poem for Survivors December 8, 2014

flowers-in-lavaYou are closer than you know
More capable than you dream
And more grace-filled than you dared believe.

That which could not kill you
Has not only made you stronger:

Align it with the winds

Of change headed your way.

Knowing that the path
Already laid before you
Will be better as you walk it
This day.
