「DOUBLE-SIDED」Set 6

From White Tiger

AMULET

a necklace with a pendant
and a meaning only we understand
given to you on your birthday
so many years ago

have you kept it?

a braided cord
tied twice around your wrist
made by hand
with string and love and hours

do you remember?

because I promised
I’d protect you forever,
I’ll give these gifts to you.
don’t think of them so lightly.

do you understand?

a reflection of our relationship
and an amulet to guard you
with a world so beautifully vast
sometimes, this is all I can do.

will it be enough?

because I promised
I’d protect you forever,
I’ll give these gifts to you.
don’t think of them so lightly!


From Azure Dragon

Gifted in Disguise

all the things that weigh you down
the spirits gave to you –
look at them differently and then you’ll see
the gifts they are inside.

take my hand and follow me,
I’ll show you how to use them
to turn your suffering into art
and create your life anew.

the days are full of challenges, I know,
but everyone faces those –
I’ll show you how to ride the waves
because what else is there?
how else would you live?

all the things that weigh you down
the spirits gave to you –
moving forward, you are still,
and farther than you thought.

you’re gifted, after all.
