Getting On With Life

Learning over and over
 to make concessions,
making do with what I've got
and where I am contented
in the home I am allotted.

Watching older women and men
passing, with a smile on their face
and I wonder if they know, 
when I smile back, how much I care 
and how much we have in-common.

Until I am allowed again, 
in my little space within,
I ponder for answers.
 The direction for me
is always the same:

“Forgiveness, understanding
and unconditional love.”

Grateful to the source I cannot see
yet strongly feel its protection and peace,
I am whole again and ready to face
the next challenge.
