life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life


She stopped offering excuses, justifications, explanations.

She said yes or no with her whole being,

Letting her heart and gut guide her

Knowing neither were infallible

Claiming her right to change her choice 

When new information- inner or outer- arose.

There were consequences. 

There always are. 

She let herself learn, flourish,

Blaze like the sun, 

And rest in the sweet, cool darkness. 

She offered what she could to her people,

She followed the blood red thread of her own life.
