The fabric of your life is rich and vibrant

The strands knit you in,

tightly, behind and before


New fibers will be woven

Hair from a perm gone wrong

Fragments of unrequited love

Ribbon from a favorite dress


Some threads will loosen

Chords from a song, words lost

Relationships frayed

Dreams unraveled


Take your full shape

Reach to the fringes

Expand beyond this corner

Trace the material of yourself


Hold tightly to the truth

You are good

Hold loosely to the rest
