The Shaman Girl


in eighth grade

I met a shaman

this girl possessed

the power

of kindness

my magical friend

transformed me

changed the skin

others saw

so I was no longer

different, strange

decades later

when I felt scared, again

she knew

the shaman sent me

Raven skin

then

Salmon skin

with her gift

transformed, no longer

afraid to be

different, strange
