CULTIVATING EMPOWERMENT THROUGH POETRY

The Thing Is

Leave a comment

to love life even when. . . you cannot find

the comfort in the familiar

you once had

Even when grandma is gone

but to love life and the spirit she always displayed

she did live

Even when you’ve lost a job and a house

Even when you’re some place you’ve never

been before

I can take it again and not dwell in

how it’s been but see where it will only

get better.

K.H.
