We Must

the magic word for peace

when the mothers start to shatter, then everything just comes undone” – Tori Amos

We must keep ourselves together, even when the tides themselves seem to pull at our limbs.

We must keep ourselves upright, even when the earth itself seems to tilt us to submission.

We must keep ourselves nourished, even when the child itself seems to suck dry our hearts.

We must keep ourselves whole, for as alone as we may seem, we are needed, together.

Sian Alexia
