Carry joy with you
it’s not too heavy
after all, au contraire
it will lift you up
carry it in your heart
you may think it
tucked in close, but
joy can’t be contained
it will leap freely
from your heart
to another’s and
yet, when you look
you’ll see you
haven’t lost it
it’s still there
shining brightly
making all things whole

: In your journal:

  • What does it mean to carry joy in your heart?
  • What is healing?
  • Describe a moment that was healed.
