Despair is the Only Fault that Cannot be Mended (Joy Machine: Poetry & Meditations)

More insights for my forthcoming 2018 Joy Machine project!

There is forgiveness, and self-forgiveness

For almost every human error and fault

Under the sun.

But despair is the one thing on earth that puts us

Beyond the reach of mercy

And no less,

Of the self-compassion we so desperately crave.
