Embracing Thorns

Acknowledge the constructs in which I find myself in.
Tune in to a wider metabolism.
Accept our shared ability to both hurt and heal.
Open my body to embrace the thorns, and the softness beneath them.
Welcome the contradictions, paradoxes, pains and pleasures of this process.
Find strength in and through our shared vulnerability.
