Laugh, I tell you

And you will turn back

The hands of time.

Smile, I tell you

And you will reflect

The face of the divine.

Sing, I tell you

And all the angels will sing with you!

Cry, I tell you

And the reflections found in your pool of tears –

Will remind you of the lessons of today and yesterday

To guide you through the fears of tomorrow.

Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem



Already in my spacesuit, where is my pilot?

“She’s saying, love is like a barren place

And reaching out for human faith is

Is like a journey I just don’t have a map for

So baby gonna take a dive and push the shift to overdrive

Send a signal that she’s hanging all her hopes on the stars […]

She packs her bags for outer space

And now she’s waiting for the right kind of pilot to come”
