Card 116, Gallery 2

Knows that now
is the time to look back,
see the bones
of her owned beginnings.

Hardened harshness that cages
both head and heart,
keeps them separate
and so far apart.

Only knowing, as she hoped
back then, that voice of her soul
must not be forever
trapped within

this callous unknowing prison
of brittle calcium. Must be given
freedom to stand alone,
and to speak.

    I am so glad the voice of your soul found voice, my friend. It has given so much to us and to the world, through your writing. I hve spent the morning trying to catch up on writing………a bit under the weather.
