My Sweet Ophelia | Darci Walker @thekitchenpoet

My sweet Ophelia

do you know

you hold the world in the palm of your hand

with tender touch

to shape and knead

the dreams of those

who wish to pin you down.


My raging Ophelia

do you know

you hold the world in the palm of your hand

with clinched fists

to pound against

and silence those

who wish to lead you astray.

My lost Ophelia

do you know

you hold the world in the palm of your hand

with open arms

to receive the gifts

offered freely by those

who wish to unleash your power

My brave Ophelia

do you know

you hold your heart in your own hands

with a rising courage

to inhale your tears

and exhale a golden truth

that can lead us all to better days.
