Exploring Netzach: Morning Torah

The poetry of this being the Sefirah week of Netzach (endurance, grit) as I tested positive two days ago wasn't lost on me. And the tenderness of Jewish tradition's teachings about Netzach spoke so deeply within me too.

"Firsts" [ #DailyPoem ]

Firsts

What if we only used first names?
How would we know our tribes?
Would our fathers be remembered less,
or would we remember our mothers equally?
I'll tell you one thing:
No one would be the last anything,
for we'd all be firsts.
