soulbeauti

they told me there is nothing beautiful about destruction
toppling towers of blocks with a hand
watching brick by brick lean until it falls

but i am learning that where i do not find beauty
i find only hurt
i am learning that to breathe i must find song in that breath
and i am trying
i keep trying
and i will call the crushing weight on my soul
beauty, marvel, splendor
until i can love freely again.
