The Answer

Question everything.

You can accept what is,

and refuse to settle

for less than is possible.

You can forgive

every injury without condoning

the slightest injustice.

Do not apologize

for the fierceness of your heart

or your terrifying


The bruises that you bear,

the scars you carry,

only emphasize 

the beauty of your face

and your soul.

You are a warrior,

a seeker and a poet

of life.

How can you wonder

that those equal to your light

are not so quickly found?

May I suggest

that they are being forged

even now

in the fire of life and loss.

Just as you were.

The tears you cry are only

to clear your vision,

the injuries you’ll use

to sharpen your focus.

Keep your eyes and heart open.

But question
