Day 19: Survival isn't enough

Day 19                                                  

“I want to unfold.
Let nothing in me hold itself closed.
For where I am closed, I am false.
I want to be clear in your sight.”— Rainer Maria Rilke said that

I Say To You Idols
I Say to you idols
of carefully studied
and you worshipers
who find beauty
in only fallen things
that the greatest
We can aspire to
is the strength
to see the wounded
walk with the forgotten
and pull ourselves
from the screaming
blood of our losses
to fight on
all the more
