This moment,

this one right here,

this moment when you are kneeling on the floor in tears,

defeated, hopeless, destroyed, unable to see a way up or out,

this is your truest moment.


This is your moment of growth.

This is your moment of fire, of passion, of new, of creation, of destruction,

of ripping down walls, burning down buildings,

razing old ideas and visions of yourself to the ground.

This is your forest fire.


These are your Holy Ashes.

Anoint yourself, rend your clothing, weep and wail.



This is your moment of pain and new growth.
