reckless giver [poem]

image

I am a reckless giver
my hands
spilling the waters of my life’s blood out
to anyone who’s thirsty
my heart
an open door anyone can walk into
I am home
sanctuary to anyone who comes looking for peace
for a minute to just breathe
my mouth
full of the words anyone needs to hear
the truth when possible
the silence when truth becomes too harsh to bear
the listener too tender to hear it
I am a bottomless pool of forgiveness
absolution to anyone who can’t
face themselves for their sins
my tears
a gentle rain to wash it all away
I am selflessness personified and
karma’s first ripple in anyone’s favor and
I am here
always
