Help for Helpers

The Unbroken
There is a brokenness out of which comes the unbroken….
And a fragility out of whose depths emerges strength.
There is a hollow space too vast for words
through which we pass with each loss,
out of whose darkness we are sanctioned into being.
There is a cry deeper than all sound
whose serrated edges cut the heart
as we break open to the place inside
which is unbreakable and whole,
while learning to sing.

A ladder.
Help someone’s

out of your
house like a
shepherd.
