Don’t Get Over It

I’m sharing poems this week that may feel odd to share during the holidays, but I think they are so important.

And I think some of you need these words. So yes, happy holidays, but the celebratory joy of this season also awkwardly fits into the complexity of our lives. So this week, I’ll post poetry that speaks to the harder things we may be facing this season and beyond.

I’m for you!

What to Do with Fire

I hope we’ve learned how to disagree without burning each other.

I hope we’ve learned that we can build bridges and stand on them even if the building material is different.

I hope we’ve learned to always value people and to not disregard them when in disagreement.

Let 2020 be the year we learned.
