Breaking doubts…

Photo by Amy Reese

At this moment, this harrowed life leaves me lame.

I wonder how to believe that imperfect steps are what make life perfect, that others like me have fallen and risen to find the path again.

“Hope,” a voice says from within, but I cannot see it.

“No one believes in me,” I reply.

My heart feels blank, like these pages on which I try to write.

“Hope,” a voice says from within, and before I reply, it whispers it again.

“Hope,” I chant along, taking a step.

A word comes, and then another and a story starts to break free.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
