Healing the Wounds


Is there a healer?

for this broken glass,

these jagged and dangerous,


don’t give me generic medicine,

band-aid for a stab wound,


I need the strength of the Lakota,

to get back up again,

the certainty of the mountains,

the reasoning of the rivers,

or at least a stream, to make sense,

of this world,

a sunrise with some hope,

before I disappear as a mist,

forgotten like the fog.

Now I know,

where the Psalms came from,

the flood needs to stop.

I’m grabbing my backpack,

to meet with You,

on top of the mountain.

This surgery,

may take awhile.

sunrise on lake

Note: This poem is about previous experiences.

Blessings to everyone and PEACE!

  1. Indeed, We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], as We revealed to Noah and the prophets after him. And we revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, the Descendants, Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and Solomon, and to David We gave the book [of Psalms]..Surat An-Nisa’ [4:163]

    All Muslims believe in Moses and Jesus as Prophets of Allah… and Muslims, therefore believe in the original Torah, Psalms and Gospel.

    Dear Brother, May ALLAH swt keep you strong faith !!

    1. Semra thank you for your kind words! I know that our views are somewhat different, but I love and respect people that are Muslims, and all people. It is wonderful to call people brother and sister, and to be called a brother. Westerners don’t use the terms brother and sister very much anymore, and I wish they did. I believe we would feel more connected if we did so Thank you Sister!
