Daily Words Are Doing Me Good

Feb 3 Prompt

I have a life

It’s not a bad life;

Though it could be better.

I love where I live

I love the mountains

I only wish I could get out of the house more than I do

I want to learn about narrative medicine and be a social worker

And help make lives just a little better by being here–even my own.

I would find a community of friends who would know me and support me

Both online and in person.

I would find a spiritual community to help heal edges torn long ago, too long ago to remember.

I would be in charge of my life again–not just the limitations.

I wouldn’t feel so alone, even when I’m not, because I’d be with people who understand.





I wait

And wonder if

You will be part

Of the life I live

Are you gone for good now?

I only wanted to make things right

How can I ever make things right alone?

It would be so easy. But somehow it’s not.

Instead of calling or texting, we both sit in silence.

I'm a Southern girl at heart who wants to build a community of people who believe they can change the world with words like "love" and "freedom" when they become more than words, but actions in our work and our daily lives.
