Do you want me to move you?
just a little of who you really are-
I will make a shovel out of words-
and dig down beneath your soul
so I can lift it out-
and present it to you
from every side.
When you see it
all together like that
and not in the scattered,
that you think now define you
as no longer complete-
as damaged goods –
you will see what I see
and this sad home
that you have made in your head
will be too small-
forcing you to move
to more suitable accommodations.

Wonderfully said! We are not defined by our pasts…do they shape us? YES…define us? NO, not unless we allow it to.
