To go into the world

To find your soul
a safe place on someone
else's cupped hands

and balance 
and words
and again a way.

Damaged as we have been,
broken as we are,
pieces of our bare selves -

It's for you,
the clean smile I wear
when I leave my body and
go into the world.

  2. We are all of us damaged in some way, and who could put a price on a clean smile freely given? Not I.
