Hope deferred!

“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.”
― Reinhold Niebuhr

There was hope on the horizon
real hope,
hope shaped like normality,
but it burst
and all its innards spewed out
in lost dreams…

they say that hope deferred
makes the heart sick,
and it does
it really does,
like an affliction moving over me
a slow creep,
a contamination
and life becomes quite shallow….

So, I collect myself
in splattered rooms
where hope is laid bare
and I pick myself up…

I turn again to gratitude
I keep turning until it sees me
I keep counting every blessing
until I lose count…

surrendering to what I cannot change…
right now all I need is wisdom
and courage!!

because the sky is still blue,
the seas never stop moving
and all around me
is the sound of beautiful hearts beating…

I enter into love
and I always find kindness there!
