I love this poem. Especially the line about building a storm to surround you. I won’t so much be gathering m biological family, but my family of friends.
is rarely the end.
Take the time
to piece yourself back together,
because you will need
everything you are
Gather your family.
Reach out to friends you’ve lost.
Build a storm to surround you,
and then strike your enemy down.
Let your knees shake–
we will hold you up.
No matter what happens.
