Poem: Steps To The Rest Of My Life


Travels through life...



Steps To The Rest Of My Life



Today I will pause on the way to tomorrow,
reflecting on yesterday.

I’ll examine the reasons for my pain and my sorrow-
determine which debts to repay!

I’ll retrace the steps that led me so far,
to this cold place of darkness and fear.

And I’ll slay the dragons - if they still exist -
and the demons that invited me here!

I’ll leave them in ashes and never look back,
get rid of the pain and the strife.

I’ll, tentatively, take my first steps to the future-
those steps to the rest of my life.

Both poems held a deep meaning to me. Going on 79 years I have experience many of the emotions. Thank you for expressing what so many of us in our senior years feel.

Momma/Mary,

It pleases me to know my poems touch you in some way. (My poems are often NOT happy ones)
