In the preciousness of days
Pause mend habitual ways
Inside lie answers
Many selves the dancers

Something missing there is gain
Beauty living in the pain
Empty feeling is expected
Adjustments then resurrected

Sadness leans over a ledge
Beats falling off the edge
Authenticity takes courage tact
Living is a high wire act

Engage fully each moment
Each step an atonement
Rarely more than you can carry
Though at times it seems scary

Keep going make your mark
Heal be good to your heart
Task always of current times
Making reason with your rhymes

Are you apart from something important – partner, job, profession, community, family?

Have you explored your self-talk about what happened, what to learn and digest to move on?
