Roam


I am ready to arrive at After.
Where answers are,
and resolution resides.

Instead, I’m in the midst of During.
Crisis is here, with
complicated questions, and
conflicts that confuse,
even frighten.

I cannot return to Before,
where simplicity
and innocence
linger.

So, I wonder about Ahead.
I remind my heart to hope,
set my face like flint,
and walk the Now.

  3. It's so hard to be in the "during" of hardship or indecision. I thought you expressed this in a very universal way.

    1. You're right . . . it *is* hard! And (at least for me), the difficulty is eased a little bit by knowing that I'm not the only one who experiences those feelings. So I'm glad this resonated with you. Thanks for visiting!
