Really missed your poetry, and this has so much heart and soul and genuine emotion. I feel the human pull and pressure of "not letting it slip", not letting our strength and what we project on the outside falter, but... at the end of the day we are only human. I love the inspiration in this and the incredibly vivid imagery, yet the reality that we face hardship and anguish and grief continuously. It's amazing how we stand at all, isn't it? It's an incredible thing to behold. And I love your voice in it. Unyielding, refusing to be invisible, to be shaken, to be brought under. All the love to you!
