Just for Now....


                                           It's okay to hurt...

                                   Go ahead,.... embrace the pain...
                                      ......but just for awhile.
                                  Then, when tomorrow is here...
                                      You can try to understand

Inspired by the  "What You Need To Hear"  Contest...sponsored by Kristin Reynolds

    Embracing the pain often leads to a cathartic release that's good for the spirit. Very nice poem, Carrie! You should do well in the contest! Love, Carolyn
