Adjust the Focus

What purpose is served
in going back – and yet,
I find myself revisiting,
expecting what?


I am no more than a guest
in history’s halls
powerless to undo
the drama, only
risk further complications.

Past equates with inequity,
no point turning on
the faucet of resentment
unleashing floods of anger.

Best to focus on tomorrow
forgive the past and self
and open to the new.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

    Maybe a different ending … maybe an alternative story arc. But the wise guest in history’s halls knows that these are but illusions and that the only way out is to keep moving forward.
