this thing I need
where sad packs deep 
but neatly in its place
under a shiny brown shell

the way an acorn hides 
the potential of a tree
inside of it--a pain
200 years old, living, still growing 
and sometimes bitter

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
