Remember When

June 8, 2016

Safe and Strong ~ Illustration by Patrice for Ginn and Company's math book, 'Starting Points in Mathematics'

Remember when
Life was soft
And
Then the world burst
Spewing anger.

That is when
I fell from my heart
Landing in a den of angry giants
Eating,
Crunching hapless wrens
Cried in anger, feared for death.

 That is when
I saw the world
Issue out some justice
My tears were dried, my heart soothed
And
I remembered when.
