Mimosa

Mimosa

From underneath the suffocating burden

and salty tears

of  


rape, molestation, 
addictions, depression,
suicide,incarceration,
domestic abuse, 
abandonment, neglect, 

 

and even black magic; 

 

Her lips parted 

and began to sing 

an ancient and powerful medicine song. 

 

The benevolent qualities of her Ancestors 

guided her 
as she sung 

the broken tapestry 
whole again.
