The Secret Message our World Needs Right Now.

This is how we love

**I found this secret message written on an index card left inside Augusten Burrough’s book, This is How: Proven Aid in Overcoming Shyness, Molestation, Fatness, Spinsterhood, Grief, Disease, Lushery, Decrepitude, and More. For Young and Old.**

In these dark days
and nights
before the sun returns in her fullness,

we need secret messages of hope
like an I.V. of coffee
in our veins,

we want love wrapped around our tired shoulders
like the softness of a handmade quilt,

and we discover reminders
of inspiration
tucked into a book at the library,

so as we open the pages,
a beacon of love
falls into our hands,

and the words come alive,
bounce off the page
into our hearts

like this secret message
that our world needs
right now.
