Let's tell stories on our skin and write with words that climb deep into our hearts.

Let's root ourselves in ways that keep us from shaking.

Let's step forward into glory and forget that shame has stalked us.

Let's let gravity kiss our feet and let flight sweep our wings.

Let's be and let's do.

Let's come shaking into repentance...

Let's uncover sacred and holy hope,

filling our lungs with its sweetness;

clothing our souls in its warmth.

Let's lose our voices in our breath.

Let's find our thoughts in our sleep.

Let's go wherever joy will lead us.

It's where you are.

And that's where our stories find flesh for their bones.
