A Quilted Journey

mayas_quilt_of_life_faith_ringgold

In every fabric of my soul

where fibers weave and thread

where stitching seems quite flawless

there are stains from when I bled

 

Ah, but isn’t it quite marvelous

to know this quilt  has tracked

all my strains and struggles

yet I still remain intact.

 

Yes, I still remain intact.
