Found Poem: Coming Back to Love, Back to Life
Mary Buchanan, Eli Bowen, and Emily Eachus

 

Dear Everything, Dear God,
After all this evil he done
I know you wonder why I don’t hate him.
He trying to make something out of himself,

When you talk to him now he really listen
Good god, I think, he begin to be someone I can talk to.
Then he say something that really surprise me,
You look real good since you been up in Memphis.

I’m real sorry,
In a few weeks we will be home.
I be so calm.
Is this life or not?

The more I wonder the more I love,
They all stand on the edge of the drive,
Us feel so weak, and us so happy.
Amen.
