FIJ Quarterly - Summer 2022 Edition

Rise By Lindsey W. I am Lindsay, a survivor and nurturer Child of Michael and Darka Grandchild of the Goddess Mother Earth; of poetry and activism I am water; smooth and refreshing, smashing, protesting against the cold shoreline Slowly eroding callous practices I am flexible, spontaneous People see me as determined and supportive, some see me as self-absorbed and aggressive I see myself as a creative and resilient warrior I am on a journey to make a better life for my family and myself, to break generational curses, and to speak health, both physical and mental, unto us all

To live as Emily Dickinson wrote: "If I save one heart from breaking I shall not live in vain."
