By yourself

You must learn to forgive yourself again

and again.

You must learn to nurse yourself

back to life every time you taste the lips

of death and all her isotopes-

rue,

grief,

pain.

And after every new fall,

you must learn to sit firmly under honey

and shower yourself with sweetness

watch it run over new wounds and old scars.

You must never forget

that sometimes,

to heal,

we must first learn to forget.
