Down the rabbit hole, we continue to go.
It can feel as though the closer to the light we get,
the thicker the trenches that line it become.
Do not be dismayed, brave warrior.
This is part of the cleansing process and it is a testament to the truth in our experience.

We are caught in a healing crisis,
stuck in between stories of the old and the new.
"We want to be better!" we scream.
"We want to be sovereign!"
But that sovereignty is buried deep in the lines of pressure and dis-ease.

The desire to fight has been suppressed for so long that it's coming out like an eruption,
a rising of a prolific magnitude to the likes we haven't seen.
But this is the human way;
every generation must go through its right to shape its reality based on the beliefs and advancements of its own era.
Not all wars are fought with guns.

Living between stories is an extraordinarily uncomfortable place to be
because in this space there is nothing but blank pages.
But if we look closely, we can see the truth—
it is a gift that will extend far beyond our time and space.

Our reality is changing, both personal and political.
For some, it is one in the same.
With every action and inaction,
with every word spoken in heart and mind,
our new story is being crafted.
