At the Edge of all my Tomorrows

Here I sit

At the edge of all my tomorrows

Ragged in some places

Tattered in others

And completely

Wholey

Holy

Me

 

Showing up

One step at a time

Through the fear

Facing my demons

Digging deep then digging deeper

 

At the edge of all my tomorrows

The future is my oyster

My pearls of wisdom now being formed in darkness

Submerged and in stillness at the bottom of the sea

 

It is only if I dive deep

And deeper still

That I can find them

And pull them out of their slimy hard-shelled cocoons

To wear around my neck

As reminders of my strength

 

Here I sit

At the edge of all my tomorrows

Ready

Because the pearls of wisdom around my neck remind me

I am strong

I can handle

Anything.
