Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything.
That's how the light gets in.
~ Leonard Cohen
Oh, how grateful I am for the poets of the world. Poets are my saviors in difficult moments, when the challenges of living come to remind me of my humanness. They remind me of the beauty even in the brokenness, even in the darkness, even in those spaces too ugly to speak of. It is a most incredible experience to have a human life, and poets know this, they must know it, or they couldn't write the way they do, they couldn't reach into the very center of us and ring the bells of soul that resonate with the stars. Don't you think?
To Poets then~
