Who Remains Standing?



First,

erase your name,

unravel your years,

destroy your surroundings,

uproot what you seem,

and who remains standing?

Then,

rewrite your name,

restore your age,

rebuild your house,

pursue your path,

and then,

endlessly,

start over,

all over again.

Andree Chedid (b. 1921)

To  friend who shared some very personal

experiences from their past with me yesterday.

I can’t help but feel this is an appropriate

thought for you today.

Who remains standing?

Have a great weekend family,

Peace,

Ten
