Gently Wrapping Herhow do i tell her
this isn't her fault?
how do i tell her it doesn't
take her beauty away?
how do i tell her she matters
and she is NOT damaged?
she can't hear me thru her sobbing.
thinking of women everywhere -
of their strength and their survival,
i hold their power in my heart,
closing my eyes, i wrap that power quietly around her
and i sit and wait.
