FEBRUARY 10, 2019

    This particular song, got me through the toughest times. Like the time I sat in the parking lot of the hospital, my mom inside. She'd just had a lobe of her lung removed to try & get the cancer. I'd just found a hidden camera in my bathroom. It was almost an out of body experience; I just sat. I listened to this song at least 75x & finally snapped out of this horrible, tranquil state. I put on a smile, greeted the doctors, & earned daughter of the year with tending to my mother, despite the explosion I'd left down the road.


    I still look back at days like those & wonder how in the actual hell I made it through.


    Damage has defined our border

    All that matter forged in flame

    Knowing little of your wounding

    Share our mending all the same


    Weight of words and wars we carried

    I'm like you, just like you

    Eyes of secret and storm and story

    But shared, and well, we'll make it through


    Sadness like a pendulum

    Pulls us round and to and fro

    Onus Fate and Undo Odium

    Armor, anchor, lead and stone


    By the telling let them become

    Will they all be feathers?


    Eyes of secret storm and story

    Show and tell, we'll make it through

    Onus Fate and Undo Odium

    Armor, anchor, lead and stone


    By the telling

    may they become

    May they all be feathers
