Nakiah

Nakiah was my Foster in 2008. She stayed with me over 8 months and died of mammary cancer. Pics attached.
Her poem/message to me is as follows: Body.

“To see a body as anything except a means of communication is to limit your mind and to hurt yourself. Sickness is anger taken out upon the body, so that it will suffer pain…Healing is the result of using the body solely for communication. Forgiveness lets the body be perceived as what it is: a simple teaching aid, to be laid by when learning is complete. Who transcends the body has transcended limitation. I am not a body, I am free - For I am still as God created me.”
