Stairs to Moving Forward

tears be
the balm
of the badly
bruised, beating
faith be
the calm
of the noisy,
full of fear
hope be
the song
of the silenced,
hunched, inner
Him be
the strong
of the weak

In response to Napowrimo Day 1 and Day 2.
I’d like to challenge you to write a Kay-Ryan-esque poem: short, tight lines, rhymes interwoven throughout, maybe an animal or two, and, if you can manage to stuff it in, a sharp little philosophical conclusion.
Today, I’d like you to write a poem inspired by, or in the form of, a recipe! It can be a recipe for something real, like your grandmother’s lemon chiffon cake, or for something imaginary, like a love potion or a spell.
