The Grief Shālā

When we peel back the layers of all the human maladies we will find grief at the core.
Wash their body,
Sit with them, 
Whisper I love you.
Carve their casket,
Carry their body.
Pick up the shovel
And dig their grave.
Give your grief
Somewhere to go.

"When modern people engage in grief rituals, they often say it feels familiar as if they’ve done this before. Yes, we have, for more than two hundred thousand years. And then, within the past few hundred years, it practically disappeared. That’s a profound loss.’’
