Hello, I wrote a new song. First it was called You make me wish I wasn’t homeless. Now I think it’s called Song for Danielle. Wow, and it was her birthday yesterday.
The song is heartfelt and has some funny parts, and I hope you like it. Please hear it if you can and share with a friend.
Also we made a gofundme for our moving expenses and this unplanned travel as we’ve been looking for a home. A few friends asked for a way to donate. So here’s the link. Thank you for your prayers and love.
song for Danielle
you make me wish i had an address
i wish i could receive you somewhere
i wish you could be my visitor
you make me wish i wasn’t homeless
i’d make you a beautiful grilled cheese sandwich
at night i feel vulnerable
in the morning i feel safer
i’d make you fancy lemonade with ginger
i remember when you brought your baby
to the radical mental health collective meeting
he was not 18 so violated our policy
but i don’t think he was listening
you make me wish i had the resources
to fly to Florida and be a person
you make me wish i was slightly less crazy
to rest in my seat and get through security
you could bring your brilliance
your art making
books muffins cupcakes
being who nourishes
bright goddess welcoming
i wish i could welcome you
How have you been lately? Have you lived through time periods without a home? Some people see it as exciting and free. Some people see the fear.
There was a short time I was without a home after I left my ex, as Ming and I were getting together. It was terrifying. This go around, at least I have a solid relationship, and more life skills as a 40-something. I love myself now, which is a kind of strength that changes everything.
Ming and I don’t have money, but we have credit and love. Friends are contributing to the gofundme, which is a good feeling but another kind of vulnerable.
