Love For What You Believe In

Let’s not fight! Let’s remove the language of violence from our lives, and move from a place of peace. Love, Tammy

Our Many, Our Whole

P1410784

My body, my land.

Containing all the stories

all the world in it,

but they are not all my own.

The whole is not simple,

vague or even pure.

We must never stop

listening to how this swirl

this totality morphs into the

particularities of me and

you, as we strive

and struggle to bring ourselves

to the whole with compassion

and understanding.

We are one, yes,

but it doesn’t end here;

we are still so incomplete

in our knowing,

if not our being.

May we always

listen

honour

respect

commit

to the mosaic of our

distinct stories.

Our bodies

Our landscapes,

Our jewels

build something

beautiful together. – TS

Come Undone

Map 1p

undo the knotted breath
loosen the tightened grip
 
unsee the ordinary view
unhear the stained words
 
unmake the false construction
tear down the soiled edifice
 
unlearn the tainted lesson
ungrow the poisonous weed
 
say no to incoherent ideology
stand against the bile of untrue
 
unbelieve what feels wrong
unattempt to fit right in
 
unlove what has condition
unadmire what leads astray
 
unemcumber your beautiful body
unclutter your precious mind
 
but don’t stop here,
don’t stop here!
 
ours is a world to create
ours is a love to discover
 
let us first unravel the mess
so as to learn and build again. – TS
