Loss

As a woman, I weep
As a child of immigrants, I weep
As a daughter of Earth, I weep
As a weaver of words, I weep
As a fighter for peace, I weep
As a lover of truth, I weep
As a believer in hope, I weep
As a friend of all lovers, I weep
As an American, I weep
As a human, I weep

  1. Beautiful, powerful, sad. I am still in shock. And then fragmented. As a friend said….this is destructive as 9/11. I believe this is divine in its horror. That’s not to dismiss but to have some way to hold what has come to be.
