MAMA SAID

There would be days like this;

 

when the twisted story of

anger

and

hurt

 

overwhelm

 

the better story of

patience

and

care.

 

On days like this,

seek silence,

gentleness,

kindness--

for yourself

and for all.

 

For on days like this,

the twisted story

ties everyone up

in knots

which are not easily undone.
