“A creative short by member Somayeh Jafari, ‘The wound is where the light enters’ explores the push and pull between love and hate.”

Excerpts from Poems by Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī

We are
Wounded healers
Illuminated brokenness
Poets and sages tell us:
        The Wound is where the Light enters you.
I look at my own heart
and see scars
   scars piled on scars
The scars tell me 
I lived through it all
and grew.
I survived.
Even thrived.

The wound
the injury
and the healing
are now all a part of me.     
I pause now
at all the broken windows
