Of Ruin and Renewal We are souls Of ruin and

Of Ruin and Renewal

We are souls
Of ruin and renewal
Sorting through the rubble
Of our painful past.

We are souls
Of ruin and renewal
Waiting for the dust
To settle at last

We are souls
Of ruin and renewal
Searching for eyes that see us
And walk through the debris

We are souls
Of ruin and renewal,
We rebuild, we revive,
We repurpose our own story.
— Liz Newman, Of Ruin and Renewal: Poems For Rebuilding
