Fear, old as heart-beat,
Old news for me. For,
Destruction shadows creation!
New beginnings start,
A journey of Pain.
Everytime, boundaries are re-drawn,
A merged self is torn.
leaving a gaping hole-
Dark and Empty!
Taking ages to sew.
Stitches... sore and visible.
Leaving a weathered soul,
With patches, like a poor man's quilt.
Still, is sacred.
As conception of Unborn,
As cosmos, As being alive.
Blades of grasses, wild flowers,
Breakthrough, inspite of rocks...

Was reading something about Maya Angelou (the famous feminist poet) and found this ....
Maya's older brother, Bailey, provides an unconditional love that creates in Maya a more balanced, healthy spirituality. Bailey is Maya's companion and supporter.
Maya writes: “Of all the needs…a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness is the unshaking need for an unshakable God. My pretty Black brother was my Kingdom Come.”
(from- I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1969) a powerful, inspirational childhood autobiography by her).
After this, do I need to say anything!
(PS: I'm in her home state now and appreciate it all in a better way).
