A Suit of Tears

I’m told that if you talk
for a thousand years,
you can make a suit
of words and tears,
stitched with threads of pain,
and lined with a layer of knowing
and a layer of doubt.

I’m told if you pour
you words into space
that you can weave there
the face of forgiveness
and grace,
find in time the strength
to live
and to forgive.
Your self.
