forgive yourself.

put yesterday down

outside the front door,

and leave tomorrow

by the window.

the light will shine on it

soon enough.

hush now.

this is today’s song.

a simple refrain.

speak to yourself with


and rub kindness into your



the wild flowers

are waiting to bloom

from all your broken places.

— forgive yourself.
