The Line

A line stretched out before me

A line running east to west

A line named grief and sadness

A line I don’t intend to cross

 

A line stretched out beside it

A line running parallel

A line of frustrated anger

A line whose beckoning, I quell

 

A line and then another

A line as far as eye can see

A line I mean to skirt around

A line traverser? No, not me

 

A line running east to west

A line unending either way

A line of infinite extension

A line unskirtable today


Today, one line I’m crossing

Today, when beckoned, I will come

Today, I’ll journey through completely

Today, feel pain and anger, some

 

Today, I crossed a line

Today, I plodded through

Today, I felt the anguish

Today, I’m weary and confused

 

Today, no longer feel afraid

Today, no longer bound to run

Today, I’m whole, embracing both

Today’s grief and joy within the son

 

Today, I live in victory

Today, I live as me

Today, I embrace everything

Then move on, another day to see
