I want you to know, Tess, that you need not feel so vulnerable.
You’re an ancient gladiator of joy who chose the jungles of time and space with your superhero friends to experiment with shape shifting, mind bending, and planetary transformations. Any twinges of self-doubt are just to keep you grounded enough to refrain from laughing at the things your protégés might find terrifying.
You need not feel so vulnerable,
You are powerful, Tess, capable of rebounding from any setback, with a smile so reassuring you heal others with a glance… as long as there’s no poorly timed chuckling and snorting. You do crack us up.
