TO A DEAR FRIEND MOTHERING MISERY
Every time your grief cries,
you pick it up, cradle it
like a newborn. But your pain
isn't precious, not your life-long
responsibility. For each doting moment,
needs your music too much.
for nights on end unattended. Let it
forget how your heartbeat sounds, the warmth
of your skin. Stop making it soup when it coughs,
setting a place for it at the table or buying it
new clothes. Convert its old room into
a sanctuary for things you adore.
& grow apart from you,
& forget to call home.

No one is untouched by trauma. We all need healing. Trauma begets trauma. We can't break free from the cycle of harming ourselves and harming others without healing our own wounds.
In the spirit of co-liberation and in recognition of the interconnectedness of historical trauma and the perpetual cycles of trauma and harm embedded in our current culture, a portion of the sales from all grief jewelry will go to the Loveland Foundation Therapy Fund, providing financial assistance to Black women and girls seeking therapy.
I make each piece of jewelry in this collection as a prayer that you can heal yourself and thereby contribute to the healing of all beings.
