You sliced your pride with swords of truth and light
With honesty and grace so singular,
With soulful generosity to spite
Your perfect image; T'was overthrown! You stirred
Us to accept ourselves, love and forgive,
Because there's health if faults you learn to share
With others, so you're not afraid to live
And turn from ego darkness and despair.
The process moved you to a grander place
Within our hearts, and we did empathize
With all that you encountered and did face.
Truth burned the roots of all that you despised.
Remembered always Carrie you will be,
Your strength, your joy, your soul's dear majesty.
