Mimosa

From underneath the suffocating burden

and salty tears

of  

rape, molestation,

and even black magic; 

 

Her lips parted 

and began to sing 

an ancient and powerful medicine song. 

The benevolent qualities of her Ancestors 

guided her 
as she sang

to the many tangles threads

of her broken tapestry 

until it was 

whole again.
