Poem from the book Emerging Voices
by Laurel D. Rund


This Puzzle Called Life

Pieced together throughout the years,

the outside border of this puzzle called “life”

presents itself as my human form.

Like a comfy pair of shoes, it is easy to wear

and visible for all to see.

 

Ah, but the inside pieces are much more

complex ~ hidden from view.

They are a reflection of my spirit, of my soul!

I have finally come to understand that these

puzzle pieces ought not be rigid or unyielding.

They should be sturdy, pliable and unrestrained

 because life is about change and wisdom gained .

 

In the past, I was intimidated by puzzles,

put off by the frustration of not being able

to see how everything fits together.

Today, as I move my life’s puzzle pieces around, 

and new shapes take form,  I am filled

with curiosity and confidence.

These colorful images are a kaleidoscope which

reveal my intent, my purpose and the gifts within me!

Laurel
