This is How You Will Heal the Wound

This little essay came to me more as a dream or a prayer, and people seem to like it, so I thought I’d share it with you here. Here’s an excerpt:

“First, stop waiting for someone else to do it. If, one day, someone does come with the power to heal this monstrous gash, you’ll be asked what you did while you waited. You’ll be asked what you think your purpose here is. You’ll be asked who the hell you think you are.”
