I befriended a Veteran sunflower baby Groot hug baby Yoda shirt. They moved nearly 10 years ago however, we remained in touch through FB. Their precious son died one week ago from Glioblastoma. He was 13 years old. We knew that his time was limited after the diagnosis. Nevertheless, it doesn’t make it easier knowing that the end is near. His parents ensured that his last two years were filled with intention and meaning. He loved music and one of his favorite songs was Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen. On one of his last outings, he performed at the Red Rocks with loved ones and belted this signature hymn. No parent wants to outlive their child and yet, some do. Mourning, I decided to write a poem for Koby.

I’m certainly not a poet and Veteran sunflower baby Groot hug baby Yoda shirt, the need to connect and contribute is stronger than the call of solitude. (Being solitary is my default.) Vulnerability, defined by Brené Brown, is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity. I never want to shed my armor, but to offer my tribute and condolence message, my guard must come down. The picture below crossed my path soon after the news of Koby’s transition. The image was the impetus for the poem. And this is how we change the world. We all have an invisible podium before us from which we can speak our message.
