Portland, Oregon's Cancer Survivorship and Bodywork Zine by Compassion Arts PDX, LLC

Some folks

Some folks have been through
The deepest suffering
That anyone on the planet
could know
And you’d never see it
As you pass them by
In the grocery store
Or brush against them
In a crowd

But, ya might notice
A smile
Or a glint
In the corner of the eye

A walk that’s a little different
From so many you know.

Being born
Is trauma enough

Yet, humans still harm one another
A post-traumatic injury…
Of stress.

The body, the mind, the spirit
Pummeled in excess…
The ability to adapt
To restore
To regulate nervous system


Held in our connective tissue
Suspended in glial

In memory, in emotion, in walk, in dream,

in breath.

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.” -Plato

Walk softly…
