Poem: The Calls

Photo Credit: Priscilla Du Preez

I always get these calls,

From someone I feel

Does not care at all

In my vulnerability,

The love I cherish,

Spoke wisdom to my heart:

That I am valued, important,
I am not at fault.

I always get these calls,

That I hope is authentic

Have my best interest—at heart

Far greater, important

for my wellbeing, that I know,

not at all, So, I answer the call.
