Lend me your biography; your innermost-ness,
Your secret shame; your hidden struggles,
And I shall gift you words.
A language woven with silk,
Borrowed from my own unravellings,
Frayed edges, now mended.
Let me help you thread the needle,
So that you may quilt your scattered pieces together,
And, in time, find yourself whole again.
‘Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.’
- Yehuda Berg
