Hold tight…

A wonderful header piece from Cheryl at holdthisspace… a great antidote to so many of the platitudes we can be tempted to spout in the face of suffering and pain:

battle-scarred and tired
we watch you lift yourself
again
into the hardness of today

the cliches sit on the edge of our
tongue
left unspoken
in respect for their futility
and your new hard won wisdom

hold tight
we whisper
a prayer for ourselves
as much as you

hold tight
