Native Wisdom 5
My home could have been yours.
But for the secrets the walls have kept.
The words shouted at all that unfairness embedded in the walls.
It is still a strong house; my body, who I am –
Who you refuse to see.
Filled with imperfections
Therein lies the beauty;
(Free verse and Elfje)
“The outline of the stone is round, having no end and no beginning;
like the power of the stone it is endless. The stone is perfect of its
kind and is the work of nature, no artificial means being used in
shaping it. Outwardly it is not beautiful, but its structure is solid,
Like a solid house in which one may safely dwell.
