From the recording Haloes In The Trash
I wanted to share something I wrote for others in my life who have faced loss. I have friends who’ve lost much more than I will ever know, or endure. I’m talking about losing a child. Whether through accident or illness I’ve seen first hand how shattering this can be. I think we live in a world where our empathy is beginning to slip away. We have a hard time putting ourselves in one another’s shoes because it forces us to exist in consideration of others over ourselves. I wanted to write something that empathizes not only with the parent, but with the children who face having to say goodbye to their parents as well. This months poem is called Haloes In The Trash.
