HAPPY NATIONAL HEALING DAY
As all should truly be
Today the healing
Starts with me…
Not like medicine or cures.
It opens the heart
To the minds closed doors…
The rich can’t afford it.
Although it’s free… for the poor.
The secret is to meet it with love.
I have ventured further
Than I care to mention into places
Where faces are from.
I have seen pure hate and have mocked its state
So much it was what I had become.
I have let water drip
In the sink in my kitchen,
Seen amber alerts
And ignored those went missing
Have lied have cheated have killed have stolen
So much that it’s rendered me sick.
I prayed for a way to not make another me…
I needed this healing day quick.
I ordered a round
For everyone at the bar,
Tried to drown in my food
Pop pills crashed cars.
Guilt is a wound
That leaves no blood and no scars.
Using abuse to hide my abuser
Selling but buying from users…
Working the job to the dead end street
Earning nothing to pass on to my feet
A soldier a father a mother a child…
The illness is ignorance the blessing is smiles.
The hug is electric the eyes hold a spark
The herbs of the earth
Is it not written is yours…
The water is heavenly it falls from the sky…
Then rises again like us when we die.
The healing is for all
When we share it we’re alive.
So if death is disease……
The healing is life.
