I did this free write/pseudo-poem for my RHV project. Check it out here to learn more about it.
“A New Day”
A new day. A new heartbreak. A new life shattered from loss.
A new name. A new face. A new reason they’re in this place.
A new soul; awakened to a world, without their someone.
A new number, in others eyes, of a world gone arise.
A new name, a new face, a new heart to embrace.
We welcome you in
And listen to the story begin.
It’s a story we have all heard before
But each time rips us to the core.
It is not fair, we agree.
But it is where we be:
“Welcome to the family,”
We are all willing and able
To guide your life back to stable.
A new day. A new name. No story is the same.
A new face. A common bond. A family gone wrong.
We can’t fix it. We’ve tried. But we can keep memories alive.
We can tell their story and make their cause seem worthy.
We can show the world, with hearts steady and bold.
That our cause is not silent in a world far too violent.
We want you to know their story. We want you to see a world so unearthly.
Know our plight – because this is not all right.
Stop hurting each other
And just love one another.
