Life’s Natural Consequences

Good morning! It’s amazing how life works. I walked 2 KM yesterday, and my body told me it was time for a nap when I got home. I’m just waking now, 16 hours later. The surgery has kicked my ass, but that’s okay. I must have needed it. I never sleep more than 2 to 4 hrs, ever!
So I have been writing a lot of poetry lately. It helps me to say how I feel. I’m a writer, not a speaker. If I were to stand in front of a crowd, I’d freeze. Those who know me, I am away from my family, and I can’t wait to bring them home. I miss them, but life is unpredictable and refuses to go in my preferred direction.


Little steps in the right direction

One at a time

For you and for me

I listen to the sound of your heart

It tells a story I’ve never heard

There’s a sadness

It lingers

But is fading as I speak

It floats like a memory

I don’t want to forget

I walk a path that was never formed

I live in a tear-filled lake

I swim to the edge only to notice life’s moved on

I yell, but no one hears me

I run but my path has faded

I know I must walk alone

But my heart beats to soar beneath your sun

I want to talk to you, but I’m suddenly shy

I fall and sit alone

I see the moon rise and the sun fade

I crawl and my shadow lifts me to my feet

I walk but my destiny is unknown

❤ ❤ ❤
