Everyday Poem #18

Is it true?

Ask these razor-sharp words

your mind shouts at your heart

when obstacles block your progress

when hurt dulls your happiness

when indigo uncertainty spreads inky clouds of fear in your chest


while you wait for that compassion and love you so freely give others

to float down into that feather-soft space

you keep open to the hope

you promised the heart you’d hold

until her wishes came true.
