Y’all, I can’t tell you who said this, but I heard it clearly.
My friend called this week a “thick” one with mucky mess making us feel like we oughta either be mad or “mad”.
Then we talked about our souls and the ways we know some stuff is meant to pull us back, keep us back, make us feel like we ain’t makin’ any progress at all.
If I don’t follow or fall back in am I less a warrior, more defeated?
What about the good, the good places we’ve found, come so far to find?
Was our satisfaction sanctimonious, are we any stronger at all?
But, oh, yes we so very much are ‘cause we know our souls and we know what stirs them rightly and what stirs them wrongly
and we decided for sure we’re better than before…just ‘cause we know how to care for our souls.
And we know where we belong.
Our souls stirred and satiated.
We continue on.
