Can we skip the sad chapters in life? The heavy-laden story arcs that need developed for substance?
The crucial contradictions to the good parts of a lifespan … in order to appreciate all we have… is more than distressing.
I choose not to read sad stories. I refuse to watch depressing movies. I protect myself and my heart from breaking as much as humanly possible. Surrounding myself with everything positive has always been the plan. Yet here I am.
It’s the first Sunday in a new month, always a poetry celebration here at Steps in Between. And as time marches forward, so do I (happy about it, or not). I only wish to forewarn you of the heavier subject matter in these last four weeks of verse. I suppose the underlying theme of hope weaves through each of them. That’s the sentiment I wish to stir in my readers today.

As always, I keep on keeping on, and am thankful for the growth of each season in life. I wish you a celebration of writing in all you are processing at the moment.
Those pages where
the story unfurls
in slender crinkled
reach for tender
under neckline skin,
tighten their clasp
in elbow bends.
The sad chapters,
in the end
create the framework—
for which hope
