For Donna <3 R.I.P. #BeautifulSoul

donna004-1Beautiful Soul

I have found something
within your gaze,
that more than moves me
in so many ways.
Something behind
those crystal eyes,
eyes more glorious
than the bluest skies.

I want to learn
all that I can,
not just to know
but to understand.
What caused you pain,
who gave you scars,
everything that has made you
the (wo)man that you are.

Like a child discovering
something new,
is the way that I feel
when I am with you.
This journey inside
your beautiful soul,
is taking me captive
as your story unfolds.

What is your Story?


Inspired by Rethink Homelessness, an initiative of the Central Florida Regional Commission on Homelessness, who recently asked a few homeless people to write down a fact about themselves that other people wouldn’t know just by walking past them. The Social Reportage class at Flower City Arts Center is doing just that, though not all are homeless, those being approached facilitate their basic needs by frequenting soup kitchens in the Rochester, NY area. These are some of the stories of our brothers and sisters.
