The curators of Blood Into Ink are honored to share the writing of another warrior, Damaged_Luna: “Everything You Are”

In life the lines are blurry

And no one will hand you a magnifying glass

All because they know what you’ll do with it.

You’ll smash it on the linoleum, and count all the shards

Matching them up with your wrong-doings

But everything you are is not a mistake.

 

Everything you are is change.

There is resilience inside of your bones,

And those whispers fall short when you stand.

Bravery is inside your mouth, on the tip of your tongue

Always remember in times of distress

There is a sword inside your iris.

 

Everything you are is kindness.

Though you are weak during this season

You grab your shovel, as you dig out the others

The others with whispers that have turned to screams

You grab their hands, and carry them home.

There is a warrior’s light in your embrace.

 

Everything you are is complexity.

You live inside a jungle that’s crawling with words

But you don’t mind, you collect them.

You place them in lines, and you tie them to butterflies

And you tell them to drop them on the graves of the past, as you watch it all rise again.

There is a blinding hope in your words.

 

Everything you are is..

Endless.

The universe has nothing on your soul.

Child, you are your own world.

So pick up your shards, and shove them inside your words.

There is a fighter inside your heart.
