a poem

Not sure why-I just felt like writing a poem today… Some days are busy, keeping my thoughts occupied-focused in the here and now; In the quiet times my thoughts often turn inward-reflective, wondering why and how. Sometimes I cannot help but be sad and grieve for what I have missed, While at the same timeContinue reading “a poem”

the good
