A tentative step, breath held, released,


chaotic swirling thoughts behind a brow, creased.


Fragile heart, bound by fragments of pride,


eyes ahead avoid the empty space at my side.


Prayers fall from lips tightly pursed;


each movement planned, rehearsed.


Fear and pain, my steady companions, await,


as I stand at this crossroads, hesitate.


Afraid to let go, afraid to hold on,


the life I planned, dead, gone.


My ninth hour is reached; I am forsaken.


I ask for this burden to be lifted, taken.


Anger, frustration fight against acceptance,


while realityís light offers clairvoyance.


 


The clouded vision clears at last;


my grip releases its hold on the past.


Love unchained, the key, opens the door


and pushes inevitable change to the fore.


This too shall pass, firmly resolved;


past sins and hurt will be absolved.


Hope, infant-like, cries out to be heard,


promise of relief takes flight like a bird.


Deep within I find my mainstay,


my heart and soulís own cachet.


Anticipation replaces fear;


I shout out loud for all to hear:


I am my lifeís designated driver --


I am a survivor.

Reviewed by Retta (Reindeer) Mckenzie
This was so emotional, so very well written, this line is echoing in my heart:

I am my lifeís designated driver
I am a survivor.


Outstanding Poetry,

Reindeer
