A mind tethered to trauma,
a spirit littered with lacerations.
Her stitches spell “RESOLVE ME”
under the magnifying glass.
Her scars spell “CASE CLOSED”
in the crystal ball.
The path to recovery snakes
through the Garden of Eden,
encircles the Tree of the
Knowledge of Good and Evil,
and travels through God’s
booming voice.
The Truth
She proclaims to mankind:
Earth to earth, dust to dust–
wounds turn to flesh as Her
burdens turn to ashes.
A severed tether, a cradle of cinders–
Her psyche transcends
