Tips on Surviving Mother Lands

give yourself permission to sweat
to cry
befriend water
swallow rain
jump into waves
fully
become
flower
inhale starlight
ingest sun
with mouth open
fully
lions breath
breathe
fully
allow
each particle
to dance inside
lungs before
exhale
before
judgement
each
misunderstanding
upon tongue tips
will become
language
will soon become
language 
 
give yourself permission to speak
speak with
honesty
each syllable
like honey
awkwardly
dripping down
throat 
made to speak
English only
for generations
 
your ancestors will thank you
for repairing 
fractured
memories
and in turn
will repair you
will make you
weep down to
sawdust bone 
but let it happen
 
give yourself permission to crumble
to become mud
over and over
embrace typhoon
again
embrace water
and wind
and shaking walls
 
how brave
to have been broken open
how brave
to have survived
 
and what treasure you will find
among the remnants
 
if you look
