We're writing our story
right now,
Whether I pick up the pen or not.
Our story is written
in the silence
of entwined limbs,
synchronized breaths,
The before, the during,
and the after;
Our Dead People
turned to ash,
and yet,
we cling to life.
The Now.

The Now is what we have. Be happy!

Beautifully deep and haunting. We carry the love of ‘our dead people’ and all that love becomes new growth.
