Friend, today is a good day
to forgive yourself for everything,
most especially the thread
you could not convince to close your wounds.
If your wounds are still open, trust
they are doors to an answer and walk through.
You don’t have to be healed to be whole.
You don’t have to know where you’re going
to stop doubting what you’re made of.
I am made of a handful of borrowed buttons
and one lost and fuzzy sock. Pull the string
on my back and I’ll say I LOVE YOU
and mean it whenever you want.
