Jack Layton's passing and our collective grief which I shared today at Toronto's Nathan Phillips Square reminded me of a verse I had come across a long time ago and which spoke so vividly to me at the time and still does.
I have used all my doubts as energy, and created with it
I have used all my pain as energy, and created with it
I have used all my anxiety as energy, and created with it
I plan to use my death as energy, and create with it
No matter what death has planned for me.
