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.
