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.
- From Starshine & Clay by Kamilah Aisha Moon
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.
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.
