In Case of Change
By Julie Flanders 4/7/15

Quiet now
The hush you need
Is all around you
Cut your ties
And let yourself bleed
Out
All the violence

Let the red
Turn into the pink
Turn into the white
Noise then
Silence and light

Hold yourself
In comfort so soft
You can feel it move in you
As deep as your loss
Let yourself cry
Out
All the secrets

Let the pain
Turn into the joy
Turn into the meaning
That remains in the coming
Changing days

I dare you to live
I dare you to love
I dare you to rise above
This
Into the safety
Of your own arms
Into the safety of
Your own heart

The gift you are
